The Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO) is a coalition of 69 national nonprofit organizations concerned with the well-being of America’s older population and committed to representing their interests in the policy-making arena. An important part of the LCAO’s mission includes advancing the recognition of the immeasurable contribution that America’s family caregivers make to enabling older adults to live meaningful lives in their homes and communities. It is time that, as a country, we acknowledge—and support—the invaluable contribution of America’s family caregivers by enacting a comprehensive paid leave policy, and we urge the 117th Congress and the Biden Administration to promote a family and medical paid leave policy that includes family caregivers.
