Oklahoma Gubernatorial Candidates Answer Your Questions

Be the Difference



 

AARP Oklahoma hosted a series of tele-forum town halls with our state’s nominees for Oklahoma governor. Kevin Stitt, Drew Edmondson and Chris Powell answered your questions about where they stand on the issues of nursing home reform, the high cost of prescription drugs and supporting our unpaid family caregivers.

 

 

QUESTION - Would you support providing a state income tax credit to family caregivers who use their own money to care for an older parent, spouse or other family members living with them?

QUESTION - The majority of Oklahoma residents want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. One way to ensure that they don't have to move from their homes is to redirect spending away from more costly nursing home care and into home and community based services (HCBS). How will you help expand Oklahoma seniors' access to quality services provided at home and in the community?
