Policy & Advocacy
This section includes federal and state legislation that directly impacts caregivers of older adults and adults with disabilities. These bills are either focused specifically on family caregivers, or they involve policies for care receivers which have an impact on family caregivers. This section also includes reports, other published papers, advocacy campaigns, and public initiatives with a focus on policies directly related to family caregiving.
