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.

Legislation
When lawmakers arrived at the Virginia General Assembly on Opening Day, our team of volunteer advocates were right there sharing our legislative priorities with them. We are requesting passage of legislation that will permit advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) to have full practice authority. AARP Virginia is also advocating for more than $2 million to fund the state Long-Term Care Ombudsman program, more funding for a state respite care program that assists family caregivers, and for legislation to protect older Virginians from financial exploitation.
