The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) has released a proceedings paper from a briefing on Capitol Hill where legislators shared their personal stories of family caregiving to illustrate the caregiving experience and the challenges that accompany it.

"Congressional Stories of Family Caregiving: Challenges, Rewards, and a Call to Action" includes the personal stories of family caregiving by six members of the U.S. House of Representatives, recommendations from the "Families Caring for an Aging America" National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report, and caregiving-relevant legislation.

The briefing was supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation and partners were AARP, the Alzheimer’s Association, and the National Alliance for Caregiving.
