To help family caregivers deal with the demands and stress of that unpaid job, AARP Indiana is hosting four Caregiver Connection events across the state.
All-day events on June 5 in Evansville and June 19 in Jeffersonville include a resource fair, panel discussion, breakout sessions and free chair massages. Evening events on June 10 in Valparaiso and June 26 in Indianapolis feature presentations by an elder-law attorney and a representative of the Area Agency on Aging.
In 2011, 1.34 million Hoosiers provided unpaid care for a loved one or friend, providing services valued at $9.4 billion—about four times as much as Medicaid spending on care delivered in nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Indiana.
