November is Family Caregiving Month and Military Family Month. As a family caregiver, you may be responsible for managing and administering lots of medication. If you have medications in your home that are no longer needed or expired, AARP Long Island encourages you to dispose of them safely this November.
November is National Family Caregivers Month and AARPNY reached out to New York Legislators so they can share their experiences on being a family caregiver. 75% of New York’s unpaid family caregivers are feeling stressed by having to balance their job and family.
AARP New York is advocating for a state tax credit for family caregivers and the federal Credit for Caring Act, which would provide a tax credit of up to $5,000 to offset costs such as home modifications, in-home care and transportation.
