Arizona's Governor and legislative leaders are negotiating now what to fund in the state budget. Click here to urge Governor Ducey and your State Legislator to fund SB1172 Family Caregivers!
Every day in Arizona a silent army of more than 800,000 family caregivers goes to work caring for their loved ones. As many Arizona familes know, caregiving is more than a full-time job and costs the caregiver money also. AARP supports funding in the state budget for Senate Bill 1172 which would allow some reimbursement of caregivers' out of pocket expenses. The reimbursement would allow coverage of expenses like building a wheelchair ramp, a walk-in shower, grab bars, or putting a lift on a van.
