Bipartisan Effort Aims to Provide Financial Relief to Family Caregivers

Today, Congresswoman Jen Kiggans from Virginia joined hands with other lawmakers in supporting a bill aimed at helping family caregivers.

Kiggans, who knows the challenges of caregiving firsthand as a geriatric nurse practitioner believes this bill will ease the financial burden on families who sacrifice a lot to care for their loved ones.
