FIGHTING FOR YOU
Arizona boosts aid for family caregivers Caring for a loved one can take a heavy toll, particularly when it means stretching your own money. This year, AARP fought to bring some much-needed financial relief to Arizona’s family caregivers who pay for expensive care for their parents, spouses, or other loved ones. Starting January 1, 2020, family caregivers in Arizona who qualify can be reimbursed up to $1,000 for expenses they incur to care for loved ones. Eligible expenses include assistive technology, home modification and more. AARP thanks the Arizona State Legislature for their support of family caregivers in our state.
