11/23: The Assisting Caregivers Today (ACT) Caucus Celebrates the Compassion and Care of Family Caregivers
November 23, 2015
In recognition of November being National Family Caregivers Month, the co-chairs of the congressional Assisting Caregivers Today (ACT) Caucus wrote a “Dear Colleague” letter to bring greater visibility to the value of caregivers and explore potential ways to better support them.
The ACT Caucus aims to inform members of Congress about issues related to family caregiving by elevating the conversation, forging an environment conducive to reaching bipartisan solutions, and helping create an urgency to act.
FCA applauds the efforts of the ACT Caucus and is glad to be a part of the effort to acknowledge and support the compassion of family caregivers across the nation.
