AARP Eye Center
Montana’s biennial legislative session kicks off Jan. 2 and promises a fast and furious pace for 90 days, as many newly elected legislators join seasoned lawmakers to weigh in on measures important to the state’s 50-plus population.
AARP Montana is pressing to expand Medicaid community services to help people with dementia continue to live at home or in an assisted living facility rather than a nursing home, which is more costly for taxpayers. In addition, AARP is backing proposals to promote early detection of dementia, create a volunteer corps of respite caregivers, strengthen oversight of court-appointed guardians of incapacitated adults, crack down on fraud and help many working Montanans boost their retirement savings.
