AARP Advocating for More Home, Community Services in Louisiana

caregiving

Nine out of 10 Louisianans 45 and older want to age at home, AARP research found. Are you one of them?

More than 10,000 residents are on a waiting list for the Community Choices Waiver, which helps people remain in their homes and avoid institutional care.

AARP estimates that the state has 680,000 unpaid family caregivers. Their loved ones may be eligible for assistance, such as respite care, under the Community Choices Waivers program.

When the Legislature reconvenes in March, AARP Louisiana will be advocating for funding to reduce the waiting list for people seeking home- and community-based services.
