Back in June, in a &l;a href=&q;http://www.nextavenue.org/daughters-caregivers-work/&q; target=&q;_blank&q; rel=&q;noopener noreferrer&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;blog post&l;/a&g; I wrote about the stresses many of America&a;rsquo;s 40 million family caregivers feel, I said: &a;ldquo;Perhaps one day, Congress will pass something like the bipartisan Recognize, Assist, Include, Support and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act.&a;rdquo; Last night, it did.
That&a;rsquo;s when the Senate passed the legislation the House of Representatives did in mid-December.
