AARP CT Testifies in Support of Family Caregivers, Aging in Place

Kathy N at Aging

AARP Connecticut has submitted testimony on several bills being considered by the General Assembly's Aging Committee that would promote "aging in place", expand access to home and community-based care, and support family caregivers caring for an individual with Alzheimer's or an aging loved one.  The bills would allow more people to receive care in their homes, provide caregivers with necessary training and expand respite services.  Read testimony presented by Connecticut resident and AARP volunteer, Kathy Null, here and testimony from AARP volunteer Pat Gerckens here.  Read AARP's written testimony on additional bills before the Aging Committee here.
