Monday, December 17th was a great day in Trenton for the 1.1 million family caregivers in the Garden State. AARP New Jersey applauds the passage of Assembly Bill 3514 which establishes a New Jersey Caregiver Task Force that will help determine how to best support family caregivers. With New Jersey’s 65+ population expected to double by 2050, it’s critical that our state has the services and systems in place to support the army of family caregivers who will become even more vital to our health care system as a whole.
