When caring for your elderly Mom and Pop, it can be difficult to find someone who could provide home care for them when you can’t. Everyone wants a person who is kind and caring, but also wanted who is licensed, bonded and insured, with no criminal record of fraud or abuse.
Millions of family caregivers face the same challenge.
The fight to live independently with dignity will not be won unless we commit ourselves to investing in building a quality home care workforce that can support family caregivers and their loved ones.
That’s where the AARP’s Virtual Family Caregiving Fair can help.
Whether you’re looking for in-home care or general support and information to help you with family caregiving responsibilities, check out AARP’s Virtual Family Caregiving Fair on Thursday, Nov. 19 (log on anytime between noon and 4 p.m. eastern time).
The fair will offer an opportunity for caregivers to learn everything they need to know to support loved ones and take care of themselves in the process. Register for the free fair at www.aarp.org/familycarefair.
While attending the fair, make sure to check out AARP’s I Heart Caregivers booth where you can share your caregiving story, read and watch others’, and learn more about how AARP is fighting for family caregivers: more support, help at home, workplace protections, training and more.
