Recap from our Policy Newsletter:
On October 31st, President Biden signed a proclamation designating November 2023 National Family Caregivers Month. This small gesture aligns with the 2022 Goals of the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers that also highlights tips for businesses looking to increase their support for family caregivers.
The first goal of this national strategy is to raise awareness of family caregiving and you can help with that mission. The Caregiver Action Network has announced an awareness campaign called #CaregiversConnect that hopes to create community and bring light to the experience of family caregiving. If social media is not for you, you can also help raise awareness by contacting your legislators to highlight important new legislation. S. 3109, The Alleviating Barriers for Caregivers Act (or ABC Act), was introduced on October 24th, 2023. This bill aims to streamline services and communication for family caregivers and is endorsed by The Arc.
