Caregiving

For the first time since AARP began publishing the Scorecard in 2011, more than half of Medicaid long-term care dollars nationwide for older adults and people with physical disabilities went to home- and community-based services instead of nursing homes and other institutions.
The coronavirus pandemic has complicated the lives and daily routines of caregivers, especially those with older at-risk loved ones. Even before the health crisis, 350,000 unpaid family caregivers in Utah provided short- or long-term care, according to the AARP Public Policy Institute.

Caring for a parent, spouse, or other loved one can be a 24/7 job that is emotionally, physically and financially difficult. That’s why AARP works tirelessly to support family caregivers, striving to make your big responsibilities a little bit easier.
Attend AARP’s free, two-part webinar to find out how.
AARP knows that family caregivers are unsung heroes who are often overwhelmed by their responsibilities and experience burn-out, though they consider caring for their loved ones a privilege. Help is on the way! The Care for the Caregiver Coalition is offering a free educational caregiving series to help caregivers with their responsibilities, supported by AARP Utah, Weber Human Services, Comfort Keepers, Comfort WoRx, CNS, Utah State University Extension, and the Utah Division of Aging and Adult Services. The classes begin on Friday, March 15 at noon, with lunch provided, and will take place on each successive Friday until May 3. Respite services are also available during class time.
