Caregiving

No matter where you are in the caregiver journey, these local agencies and organizations can help make the process easier.
For the first time since AARP began publishing the Scorecard in 2011, more than half of Medicaid long-term care dollars nationwide for older adults and people with physical disabilities went to home- and community-based services instead of nursing homes and other institutions.
November is National Family Caregivers Month, and AARP Iowa is offering free resource kits for Iowans caring for loved ones.
AARP’s new Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Scorecard finds that more than three years after the COVID-19 pandemic began, care provided in the United States for older adults and people with disabilities is painfully inadequate. The report finds that major gaps persist in Iowa, especially related to the options available to Iowans who need long-term care.
AARP research attaches $5.2 billion value to the estimated 310 million hours of unpaid care that Iowa family caregivers provided in 2021.
AARP is promoting a plan to help more Iowans receive long-term care services in their homes.
AARP Iowa is calling on the state to form a task force to better protect and support nursing home residents and workers, including pushing for more staffing, personal protective equipment and virtual visitation options.
