RAISE Act Family Caregiving Council Announces 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers

The 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers was created to support family caregivers of all ages, from youth to grandparents, and regardless of where they live or what caregiving looks like for them and their loved ones.

The local strategies may be of interest to communities working to become more age and dementia friendly and also integrating caregiver support into their action plans.

The strategy was developed jointly by the advisory councils created by the RAISE  Family Caregiving  Act and the Supporting Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Act, with extensive input from the public, including family caregivers and the people they support. It will be updated in response to public comments and will evolve with the caregiving landscape.

The strategy will be open for public comment for 60 days beginning on October 1. Subscribe to ACL Updates to receive a reminder and a link to the comment portal.
