“We commend the important work that went into developing the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers and we recognize this as another step toward meaningful change on behalf of family caregivers,” said Dr. Jennifer Olsen, chief executive officer at the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers.
“As Secretary Becerra said today, now ‘the challenge is for us to find the resources and get everyone on board to make this happen.’ To that end, we will focus our efforts on advocating for effective implementation of the RAISE strategy, which will require proper funding, leadership, and engagement across all sectors. We look forward to moving from planning to activation, so that America’s 53 million caregivers can receive the support, recognition, and resources they so desperately need.”
Our response to the recently released RAISE National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers reiterates former First Lady Rosalynn Carter’s call for a new Office of Caregiver Health within HHS. See our full response to the RAISE strategy here.
