In the face of financial scams related to the coronavirus outbreak, AARP Washington is collaborating with state and federal experts to provide information and resources that help older Washingtonians spot and stop a scam. 
Nursing home staff and resident
The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating effect in nursing homes and long-term care facilities, causing the deaths of more than 84,000 residents and staff, according to an Oct. 8 analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation—including more than 1,184 in Washington. Yet federal policymakers have been slow to respond to this crisis, and no state has done a good enough job to stem the loss of life. AARP has called for enacting a 5-point plan to protect nursing home and long-term care facility residents and has fought for public reporting of nursing home COVID-19 cases and deaths.
