AARP SD sat down with this year’s candidates for South Dakota Governor to ask about the issues most important to our members and communities including transportation, telehealth, and community services. Watch how they responded below, so you can cast an educated vote this November.
One in 10 Americans 60 and older have experienced elder abuse or neglect. In almost 60 percent of cases, the perpetrator was a family member, usually an adult child or spouse.
We want to take a moment to express our appreciation for all of the Virginia State Legislators for their support of AARP Virginia’s 2017 Legislative Priorities. These priorities include increasing retirement security, strengthening financial exploitation laws, supporting family caregivers, and protecting vulnerable long-term care recipients.
In the legislative session beginning Jan. 13, AARP Michigan aims to crack down on financial exploitation, expand long-term care options, improve access to health care, keep utilities affordable and ease the burden on family caregivers. A key to such efforts is the Capitol Corps, a band of volunteers who augment AARP’s presence at the Capitol in Lansing and at home in their legislators’ districts.
Des Moines – AARP thanks the Iowa House and Senate for coming together and passing Senate File 2239, a bill that for the first time creates a definition of elder abuse and specific protections for older Iowans and their families against elder financial exploitation.
