Senator Bob Casey Heads Up Caregiver Bill

08.12.14 | Terry Diener

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania plans to introduce a bill that would lead to the creation of federal guidelines for training volunteers who help social services agencies. Casey outlined the bill after a hearing in Lackawanna County on the “sandwich generation,” the generation of adults raising children and aiding directly in the care of elderly parents — adults he thinks could use help caring for both. He referred to the measure as a caregiver bill.
