AARP Delaware volunteer Eunice LaFate offers free art classes to help ease the stress of family caregivers. The classes will be at her LaFate Gallery in downtown Wilmington on Wednesdays in May. Sessions are limited to 10 people; registration is required.
Delaware’s 123,000 family caregivers often have to juggle tending to loved ones while working. That task is even more burdensome when ailing or aging family members need to have medication administered to them.
Caring for a parent, spouse, or other loved one can be a 24/7 job that is emotionally, physically and financially difficult. That’s why AARP works tirelessly to support family caregivers, striving to make your big responsibilities a little bit easier.
AARP was founded in 1958 by Ethel Percy Andrus, a retired educator from California. As we celebrate our 60th birthday, we stay true to her original mission by creating positive social change through advocacy, service and information for Delawareans age 50-plus, and their families. The drive, innovation and compassion of our founder continue to inspire our work as we dedicate ourselves to improving lives, standing up to injustice and transforming the marketplace. We aim to empower people to choose how they live as they age.
Delaware’s Senate passed the Share the Care Act, SB 27, this week by a vote of 20-0. AARP is working with a statewide coalition of partners to pass the bill, and this vote moves it one step closer to becoming a law in Delaware.
