Celebrating Granite Staters Caring for Loved Ones

November is National Family Caregivers Month, which seeks to shine a bright light on the more than 48 million American heroes, including 168,000 here in New Hampshire, helping care for their loved ones independently at home – where they want to be.

New Hampshire’s family caregivers provide 157 million hours of care every year, adding up to $2.8 billion in unpaid labor annually. Family caregivers spend these countless hours managing medications, preparing meals, helping with bathing and dressing and so much more. The financial, physical and emotional toll is great on them.

This is why AARP fights for commonsense solutions to save time, money and provide more support. Chances are if you are not a family caregiver, you know someone who is. Take time this month to thank one in your life for their time and dedication.

I Am A Caregiver
AARP is launching a nationwide movement, I Am A Caregiver. To many lawmakers, America’s millions of caregivers are invisible. Yet, these family caregivers hold up a broken long-term care system. Which is why AARP is looking for your help; we are starting a movement of family caregivers to show lawmakers that we are a powerful constituency who need support now.

Fighting for Caregiver in New Hampshire
AARP is calling on Congress and state legislatures to pass legislation that will help family caregiver save time and money and provide more support.

In New Hampshire, our top legislative priorities are to lead efforts to change the Long-Term Services and Supports system and ensure that Granite Staters with long-term care needs have a choice of where they live and receive services. Support for caregivers, financial assistance, and other system reform, will help Granite Staters to age in place, avoiding the need for inpatient and residential treatment.
