Action Alert and Request:
Funds need to be restored!
Funds that support unpaid family caregivers have been reduced from $10.5 to $2.9 million. This is a 74% decrease in funds. The value of care provided by unpaid family caregivers equals $234 billion. If Medicare and Medi-Cal provided the same care, it would cost $889 billion (4x’s more).
Please help with this fund restoration by writing your Senators, Congressperson and State Representatives.
