AARP Eye Center
West Virginia’s 2023 state legislative session starts in January, and AARP West Virginia will be advocating for Mountain Staters 50 and up.
Issues on the table include caregiving, long-term care, home- and community-based services and financial security for older adults. During the two-month session, AARP West Virginia’s Capitol Advocacy Team—a group of nearly 30 volunteers—will work with AARP staff to advance these priorities.
In 2022, AARP West Virginia successfully advocated for laws helping to shield older adults from financial exploitation and creating training for law enforcement on interacting with people who have dementia.
