Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) helped the House pass H.R. 3759 – the RAISE Family Caregivers Act. This bipartisan legislation she cosponsored would direct the Department of Health and Human Services to develop a strategy for supporting the vital work of our country’s family caregivers. This legislation is supported by the AARP.
“In our district and in communities across our nation, family caregivers devote their lives to giving their loved ones the best possible healthcare,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Family Caregivers raise the standards of living for seniors and those who are suffering, and we owe them our gratitude. I’m proud to support this important, bipartisan legislation that will help better support our nation’s family caregivers.”
