Caregiver Weeklies
In honor of National Family Caregivers Month 2022, AARP Indiana hosted Caregiver Weeklies, a virtual event series that spanned each week in November. AARP Indiana staff and volunteers chatted with experts in the caregiving field from communities across the state. Viewers had the opportunity to ask questions live, and all sessions were streamed via AARP Indiana's Facebook page.

The state's increasingly popular Structured Family Caregiving (SFC) program pays live-in caregivers a daily stipend, allowing people to live at home longer, instead of going to a long-term care facility. Started as pilot project in 2013, it helps more than 4,000 families and, along with similar services, saves the state roughly $2,000 per person, per month, compared with institutional care.
