’Recognize the value of the work,’ says Clinton

Homecare Insider, November 30, 2015

On November 22, at a campaign stop in Iowa, democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton cited the value of both family caregivers and paid caregivers. “We need to recognize the value of the work that caregivers give to all of us, both those who are paid and the great number who are unpaid,” Clinton said.

Clinton has introduced a plan to provide tax relief to family caregivers, expanding Social Security benefits for caregivers, investing more in President Obama's Caregiver Respite budget, and increasing training and resources for those who act as caregivers.
