Alaska has the fastest growing senior population in the nation, which means an increasing number of Alaskans are living with dementia. Our state needs to be prepared to address the needs of aging Alaskans, and the passage of House Bill 308 was a big step in the right direction.
AARP and Alaska Municipal League are pulling together toward Alaska’s future, where Alaskans of all generations can stay in Alaska. Together we know that the State’s budget shortfall must be addressed; new revenues are needed to continue to provide the state infrastructure and services that Alaskans need to allow them to remain in their communities as they age.
Our state is facing budget challenges and will need to make important decisions about how we can best address these challenges to continue providing health and financial security and economic opportunities to Alaskans of all ages, and older Alaskans in particular.
Voting in the mid-term elections is easy for some people – just a quick walk around the corner or a short drive to the polling station. But for others, it may seem impossible.
