ADVOCATE FOR CAREGIVING

GET INVOLVED - MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Public policies about caregiving are changing,     including policies about Medicare and Medicaid.

  1. Read about proposed family caregiving legislation that is before Congress, here http://thomas.loc.gov

  2. To read a description of the key caregiver elements of many bills click here

  3. If you are interested in contacting your Senators or House Representatives, but don't know how to reach them,
    you can easily find the contact information here at
    http://www.house.gov/or http://www.senate.gov/.

  4. If you want to remind the President about the great contribution - and responsibilities - that family caregivers undertake for our aging veterans and older Americans, you can write to the president at the White House email, www.whitehouse.gov.

You owe it to yourself and your loved ones - both old and young - to make sure that family caregiving is part of the debate - and that whatever changes are made to tax laws, Medicare and Medicaid include provisions so that family caregiving options are available, affordable and sustainable for all.

Caregiving Legislation Pending In Washington

Today 1 out of every 5 Americans is a family caregiver.

Right now Congress is rewriting policies and voting on legislation that will impact the healthcare and caregiving you may get or can afford give. 

The legislation will impact you in many ways as you age.

  1. It will impact you as a caregiver for an older adult you love - in terms of the emotional decisions you can make

  2. It will impact your and your family - in terms of what you can afford to do for yourself or your  loved one as needs change

  3. It will also impact you as a working caregiver and help protect you against discrimination in the workplace. 

If you are interested, you can make a difference in public policy toward caregiving.  When individuals work together to make changes, the impact is multiplied.
