PA Family Caregiver Support Act Sign on Letter
Consumer Health Coalition helped lead the way in organizing a sign on letter of support around HB 245 – The Pennsylvania Family Caregiver Support Act. The bill updates and improves upon an existing Pennsylvania program that supports caregivers helping loved ones to remain in their homes. In these difficult financial times when budgetary matters can’t be ignored, it’s important to point out that the legislation is budget neutral. Efforts like these that support home and community based services will also likely help the Commonwealth reduce spending over time by allowing seniors to stay in their homes and out of expensive long term care facilities.
