The GFPD advocates for Paid Leave for Family Caregivers Across the Lifespan

Over the past year, millions of family caregivers found themselves needing to isolate or take leave to care for family members, scrambling to fill gaps in care—often without paid leave—as many older adults and people with disabilities lost access to services. Many people are sandwiched between providing care to an older adult or relative with a health condition and typical childcare duties. Children with disabilities relied on family caregivers not only for lost services, but for school demands as well. With the limited exception tax credits to cover a narrow scope of COVID-related leave, federal response legislation to the coronavirus pandemic has largely excluded support for family caregivers.
