Caregiving

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.
Advocates say the state’s long-term care ombudsman program, which advocates on behalf of residents in nursing homes and other care facilities, is chronically underfunded and needs more money to hire staff and train volunteers.
Recordings of weekly series provides information and resources for those caring for others
AARP Missouri will push during the 2022 legislative session for allowing essential family caregivers access to long-term care facilities, even if other visitors are barred because of COVID-19 risk.
Home- and community-based services for Missourians were bolstered by an additional $250 million in federal funds from the federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
