Alzheimer's Family Assistance Act (2007)
Federal bill would provide an income tax credit, starting at $1000 in 2007 and increasing each year until it reaches $3000 in 2011, for family caregivers providing care to a relative with a chronic condition. It is intended to help offset caregiving expenses, including home health care, adult day services, respite care and prescription drugs. The bill also makes long term care (LTC) insurance premiums deductible for all tax payers and improves consumer protections for LTC insurance policy-holders.
