FIGHTING FOR YOU
AARP Nevada helps pass new laws to protect older Nevadans
With Nevada’s legislature only meeting once every two years, it’s important for AARP Nevada to ensure issues impacting residents over 50 are addressed. During the 2019 Nevada State Legislative Session, AARP worked hard to help pass new laws creating Power of Attorney for persons with dementia, guardianship nomination, restricting placement authority, protecting decision making, and mandatory paid time off. These new laws close loopholes to protect the older Nevadans with strict new guidelines to make sure decisions are made in the best interests of those who might be unable to act on their own behalf.
New Law Creates Caregiver Advisory Committee
AARP’s National Volunteer President Catherine Alicia Georges serves on the RAISE Family Caregiving Advisory Council, created by a bipartisan federal law that AARP fought hard to pass. The Council is charged with developing a national strategy to support family caregivers that includes communities, providers, government, and others.
