Jim Lee, MS

“Family caregiving delivers enormous social and economic value to both the recipients of the care and society as a whole. A society is judged on how we treat our children, elderly and infirm. Our health care system focuses on and compensates medical procedures, while overlooking caregivers’ substantial efforts to provide comfort and facilitate recovery. It is essential that policymakers understand how policies regarding employment, benefits and social supports effect caregivers’ ability to serve these non-medical needs.”

“Every political party can support the goal of supporting families in their time of need. Let’s set aside our differences and join together to craft policies that will improve care and lower financial burdens in a sustainable way.”
