November marks National Family Caregivers Month, a time to recognize the 40 million Americans – including 1.7 million Ohioans – who help older parents, spouses, and other loved ones live independently at home, where they want to be. The unpaid care they provide – managing medications, cooking meals, driving to appointments, performing complex medical tasks and more – is valued at more than $16.5 million in Ohio alone.
Adult victims of neglect, physical or emotional abuse and financial exploitation will be better protected under provisions in the state budget adopted last night by the Ohio General Assembly.
