LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1526, as introduced, Kalra. Public social services: caregivers.
Existing law, the Mello-Granlund Older Californians Act, establishes programs for older individuals and other populations served by the California Department of Aging. Existing law requires the department to coordinate with other state departments to, among other things, ensure that health and social services are available to allow older individuals to live independently at home or with others. Existing law establishes community-based services programs for these purposes. In many of these programs, existing law encourages the maintenance of family and caregiver support groups.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to provide resources for caregivers and relative caregivers.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.
