Honoring Family Caregivers This November

Connect with AARP New York while celebrating National Family Caregivers Month! Family caregivers are the backbone of the long-term care system. Caregivers provide vital services to New Yorkers, from helping with grocery shopping to meal preparation, transportation, and more, ensuring their loved ones can remain living in their own homes and communities for as long as possible. New York State’s 2.2million  family caregivers provide an estimated 2.1billion hours of care for older parents, spouses, and other loved ones each year. These family caregivers need increased services and resources to support them in their labor of love.
