Do you know ways to help keep your aging loved ones from losing money to scams and fraud? We’ll share important information that could help you keep them safe during our free webinar.
Caring for a parent, spouse, or other loved one can be a 24/7 job that is emotionally, physically and financially difficult. That’s why AARP works tirelessly to support family caregivers, striving to make your big responsibilities a little bit easier.
Look around. Are you so surrounded by the stuff in your house you don’t know what to do with it—or how to find it when you need it? Maybe it’s time to downsize and declutter. But where should you start?
More than half a million Oklahomans fulfill the vital role of family caregiver. They perform medical tasks, prepare meals and care for loved ones. While caring for a loved one can a rewarding experience, but it can also be challenging. In an effort to support family caregivers, AARP Oklahoma and area providers are hosting the Oklahoma Caregivers Conference at OU-Tulsa, 4502 East 41st Street, on November 28, 2018. The conference is free and open to the public, although registration is required.
It’s time to help solve Oklahoma’s health crisis and allow nurse practitioners to have full practice authority. 22 states and DC are addressing health care shortages by allowing full practice authority for nurse practitioners. It’s time for Oklahoma to join those ranks. HB 1013 allows nurse practitioners to practice to their full training and education. It expands access to healthcare, especially in our underserved rural areas, and enables older Oklahomans to live independently at home.
More than 524,000 Oklahomans care for older parents, spouses and other loved ones so they can live independently in their homes and communities. These unpaid family caregivers provide 488 million hours of care valued at a staggering six billion dollars annually, according to AARP Oklahoma, the nonprofit and nonpartisan advocacy organization for Americans 50 and older.
Make sure financial planning is part of your plan. Join AARP’s Jean Accius and OSU Extension Services for October’s live Q&A discussion as we talk about all of the decisions that come with managing the finances of a loved one. Even if your loved one lives at home, you need to know about their finances, accounts and obligations. We’ll review issues like when you need legal authority, the types of medical legal documents, estate planning, and other tips for managing financial accounts for your family member or loved one. We’ll also answer whether you can get paid for being a family caregiver. You won’t want to miss this informative discussion. Dinner and workshop are FREE. Register today!
