Hey there!

April was an exciting month for the caregiving community as our partners came together to amplify the voices and needs of America’s 53 million caregivers. Throughout the month, we saw caregivers across the care continuum get the recognition they deserve at the highest levels of government and in the media.

At NAC, we were proud to help shape this momentum for the system change we need to make caregiving a national priority!

The White House Care Convening

Our President and CEO, Jason Resendez, alongside board leaders Sandy Markwood (USAging) and Rita Choula (AARP), attended the first White House Care Convening, where Caregiving in the U.S., our marquee data project with AARP, played a key role in shaping the discussions.

The convening focused on critical policy changes needed to advance our National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers. It was an opportunity to engage with administration leaders and advocates working to support caregivers.

One Year Anniversary of the Executive Order on Supporting Caregivers

On April 18th, we marked one year since the release of the Biden-Harris Administration Executive Order on Supporting Caregivers. To celebrate this milestone, we released a video showcasing the significant advancements made in the past year.

The Executive Order has been a driving force behind critical caregiving initiatives, like the introduction of the GUIDE Model for dementia caregivers and increased access to caregiver training services. These advancements directly support the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers, a cornerstone of our #ActOnRAISE Campaign.

Strengthening Medicare

In a new opinion piece for ‘Next Avenue’, Jason Resendez and Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN, President of The John A. Hartford Foundation, championed improvements in Medicare to safeguard the health and wellness of family caregivers and beneficiaries. According to Dr. Fulmer and Jason, “By recognizing caregivers’ vital role and empowering health systems to better support them, Medicare can play a pivotal role in improving patient outcomes and creating a healthier future for millions of Americans navigating care.”


A CBS Morning segment – ‘The Hidden Costs of Unpaid Caregiving in America’ – with Lisa Ling leveraged our marquee data project Caregiving in the U.S. 2020 (a collaboration with AARP) to shine a light on America’s 53 million family caregivers. This segment explores the financial and mental health hardships caregivers’ shoulder while caring for loved ones. By amplifying the voices of caregivers like Ty’s alongside compelling data, we can reshape the conversation around care, driving the need for policy reform.
