Caregiving: What Communities Need to Know

Share this:

People are living longer than ever before. According to a recent AARP survey, more than two thirds of people plan to remain living in their community, or age in place. The challenge—as people live longer, they may need help from family, friends and neighbors to continue living independently at home. Caring for a family member or close friend is one of the most important roles a person plays, though it can impact the caregiver’s job, involvement with their community, and the time they have to take care of younger generations. Increasingly, the effects of caregiving will be felt by families and communities. No matter where people are in the journey of family caregiving, having a good framework to help guide both caregivers and communities will make the process easier.

This presentation offers communities help to adapt to the needs of family caregivers and offer resources to support people aging in place. Presenter: Dana Marie Kennedy, State Director, AARP Arizona. Sponsors: Partners and funders including Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, Grantmakers In Aging, Grantmakers In Health, the Pfizer Foundation and MetLife Foundation. Webinar date: February 2, 2018. View the recording here below or on You Tube at https://youtu.be/_USN0vaiZQ4
