Legislators, leaders from the public and private sector, and advocates will convene at a National Forum on Family Caregiving to elevate the conversation about this pressing issue of national importance that can no longer be ignored.
Panelists – including New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte – will discuss policies and strategies that can help support the approximately 40 million Americans providing care for their older parents, spouses and other loved ones each day. Including the nearly 268,000 family caregivers in the Granite State alone!
