Support Real Health Care Reform for Vulnerable Elderly Patients

Have you ever cared for a spouse, parent or friend with serious health conditions? Do you think family caregiving may be in your future? Or do you simply want our health care system to better serve vulnerable older patients?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, we need your help.

When Congress completes health care reform legislation, some of the most critical work will begin. We need to ensure that our reformed health care system coordinates care better, reduces medical errors, takes advantage of health information technology through electronic medical records, and more.

Together, let's make sure that health reform brings real change for elderly patients and their families.

Join the Campaign for Better Care and sign the pledge to ensure that our most vulnerable patients won't be left behind once again!

Right now, our health care system isn't set up to coordinate care for the sickest patients, which is why caregiving demands can cause economic strain, negative health consequences, and other overwhelming challenges for families. And today's workplace policies punish, instead of support, family caregivers.

This must change.

Join the Campaign for Better Care and sign the pledge to help ensure that patients and their families are put center stage in our new health care system.
