Eugene, OR – No one denies it. Family caregiving can be tough – but there are plenty of tips and tools available to make this labor of love easier. On Friday, Oct. 26, AARP Oregon and the Alzheimer’s Association are offering a workshop with a twist: the ins and outs of “Family Caregiving for Tough Guys," at Venue 252, 252 Lawrence Street in Eugene.
Clackamas, OR – To recognize their integral work to support family caregivers in Oregon, AARP names Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, Sen. Jackie Winters, Sen. Richard Devlin, Sen. Tim Knopp, Rep. Nancy Nathanson, Rep. Dan Rayfield, and Rep. Greg Smith as 2017 “Capitol Caregivers,” a bipartisan group of nearly 100 elected officials from more than 30 states. These leaders have advanced policies to support Oregon’s family caregivers, who help their parents, spouses and other loved ones live independently at home and in the community—where they want to be.
