Colorado ranks No. 8 in the nation when it comes to meeting the long-term care needs of older residents and people with disabilities, and AARP warns more must be done, at an accelerated pace, to meet changing demographic demands.
I’m a pretty typical AARP member in CO. I’m in my 50s, active, working, have been a caregiver in the past for older loved ones while raising kids at home and balancing the challenges of being a member of the “sandwich generation.” I have felt the tug of never giving enough while having to balance some me-time to avoid burn out. I’m not unusual, I’m the new normal. That is why AARP has become so focused on providing support to caregivers, because nationally there are 42 million caregivers, and more than 584,000 family caregivers in our state who help their loved ones live independently.
