With more than 10 million millennials, or one in three people age 20-36, providing care for a loved one and potentially delaying life experiences due to the time and financial cost of caregiving, LeadingAge is leading the conversation about what millennials and lawmakers can do to create sustainable and affordable financing solutions. Click here to learn more about the campaign and find out how you can get involved.
