AARP AARP States Kentucky Caregiving

Building Support for Caregivers Act

Caregiving Resource Center

When the General Assembly convenes Jan. 3, AARP advocates will be on the ground in Frankfort, pressing for legislation important to Kentuckians age 50-plus.

To support the estimated 648,000 family caregivers in the state, AARP is seeking passage of the Kentucky Caregivers Act, which would provide information and training for family caregivers before a loved one comes home from a hospital stay.

Another priority is developing a “work and save” option for nearly 795,000 private-sector workers whose employers do not offer a retirement savings plan. Tax-deferred savings through payroll deductions can supplement Social Security retirement income and keep many retirees out of poverty.

Go to aarp.org/ky to learn how you can help with these issues and for details on AARP Day at the Capitol in February.
