“A strong foundation has been laid through passage of the RAISE Family Caregivers Act and the accompanying National Family Caregiving Strategy. However, with these tools in hand, we must now work together at the federal, state, and local levels to deliver meaningful and long-overdue support to family caregivers of all backgrounds and all walks of life. The Diverse Elders Coalition and its member organizations stand ready to ensure that the Act on RAISE campaign fulfills the intent and promise of the legislation by adequately addressing and culturally responding to caregivers’ mental health, social isolation, and financial strain so they can in turn better serve diverse older adults.”
