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.
Nearly three-quarters of older adults and individuals with disabilities in Virginia receive services and supports in their homes and communities, forcing them to rely on an unpaid caregiver. By 2030 the number of potential family caregivers will decline from 7.2 to an estimated 4 family caregivers for every person age 80 or older – a 55% reduction since 2010.
