With nearly half of all deaths in Texas related to COVID-19 occurring among nursing home residents and staff, advocates at AARP Texas are encouraging those with loved ones in long-term care facilities to check regularly on the loved ones’ health and wellbeing.
AARP New York is urging legislators to boost the 2017-18 state budget for non-Medicaid services that help older New Yorkers age safely at home. The goal is to provide transportation, home-delivered meals, adult day care and other services for people who are eligible for, but are not yet receiving, home- and community-based services.
AARP came out against State House Bill 405 – the Property Protection Act also known as the ‘Ag-Gag’ bill in recent weeks. Last week, AARP asked the Governor to veto this bill after it passed the Senate because the bill goes too far and applies to all businesses, not just agricultural businesses, and could discourage whistleblowing by employees. We need employees ready to blow the whistle when abuse, neglect or unethical acts are occurring in and around our most vulnerable populations of seniors and kids.
When you are caring for a loved one at home who needs supervised care during the day, but you work or have other obligations, the Fairfax County Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) is here for you! Caregivers experience less stress as a result of having their loved one attend ADHC while they work or pursue other valued roles. Each center provides a safe and positive environment to individuals who need supervision during the day due to changes in their cognitive and/or functional abilities. Fees are based on participant’s income (and spouse if applicable) and determined by a sliding fee scale. Business hours are M-F, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with transportation available for many attendees. For more information call 703-750-3316, TTY 711 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
