AARP is working with CBS television stations News 9 and News on 6 to help caregivers access useful information by cellphone. Oklahomans can text the word “CARE” to 79640 to learn about webinars, movie screenings and videos on caregiving.

Oklahoma became the first state in the nation last year to pass a law that provides training for family caregivers before a loved one comes home from a hospital stay.
