According to a recent AARP survey, one in four Hoosiers older than 45 provide unpaid help and caregiving to an adult friend or loved one.
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.
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.
