Todd Stubbendieck has been named Director of AARP Nebraska. He will lead the Nebraska staff and team of 200 plus volunteers who are working to improve the health, finances and well-being of 194,000 members in the state.
In Nebraska, approximately 240,000 family caregivers provided an estimated 199 million hours of care — worth a staggering $2.9 billion— to their parents, spouses, partners, and friends in 2017, according to state data available in the latest report of AARP’s Valuing the Invaluable series. The complexity of family caregiving increases as medical and nursing tasks continue to enter the home, and family demographics change amidst an aging population.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide has kicked off volunteer recruitment for its Tax-Aide program, the nation’s largest volunteer-run tax-preparation service. The foundation is looking to expand its team of volunteers for the upcoming tax season and is accepting new volunteers through the end of October.
