ADVOCACY

The National Alliance for Caregiving is a leader in conducting policy analysis and tracking legislation dealing with family caregiving issues – bills that focus on family caregivers or affect the care recipient in a way that would also affect the family caregiver. NAC keeps a listing of federal and state legislation that directly impacts family caregivers of older adults, adults with disabilities and children with special needs.  Included here are synopses of bills that seek to provide support for one of the most important healthcare assets in the U.S.:  the family caregiver.

The need to support the nation’s 66 million family caregivers and sustain them as the backbone of our chronic and long-term care system is a central issue in the congressional efforts to reform healthcare.
