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.  Click here to find a list of your current political representatives; a letter from Claudia Ellano Ota, LCSW, Executive Director of CRC; a full explanation of the Action Request; and a sample letter you can use to write to your respective representatives.
