As America becomes more and more fractured, caregiving is one thing that can bring us together. The burden of caregiving is inescapable.
Rural, urban, suburban, caregiving cuts across geographic divides. No political affiliation is immune to illness, disability, or aging.
No amount of money can insulate you from the stress of caregiving. Even the wealthiest worry about the cost of medical care and support.
We’re not going to shy away from talking about the issues that affect our lives: health insurance, medical costs, access to treatment, and the lack of support for caregivers. Every time we share articles about these things that we all deal with every day we get angry comments from people who aren’t active members of the community. We’re not going to be silenced by trolls.
Our goal is to support caregivers. Always. That includes asking politicians to support caregivers.
We’re not taking sides because there is no “other side.”
There is no political party in America that is against healthcare or caregiving. Everyone wants their families to be taken care of. It’s human instinct to take care of the people we love.
The community on The Caregiver Space has members who’ve voted differently. It doesn’t matter. We all share the desire to see caregivers supported. We share the desire to support each other. Everyone on this site deserves your support.
No politician in America would look you in the eye and say what you do isn’t important. Everyone agrees that caregiving is vital to keep our families together and our economy functioning. Caregivers play an essential role in America — let’s get the support we need and deserve.
Let’s come together and ask that every political platform include support for caregivers.
