Pillars of Public Support

You can help shape and advocate for the pillars of support for employed family caregivers. Caregivers Work invites and values your voice in the process of choosing the most important public policy support for employed family caregivers.

As we begin our journey together, we have identified these three pillars of support needed by every employed family caregiver:

  1. Universal access to affordable, quality healthcare.
  2. Paid family leave and adequate Social Security benefits to avoid gaps in essential household income.
  3. Adequate public funding for and access to affordable community-based long term care services.
