You can join that mission. The State Legislature reconvenes in Baton Rouge on April 8, and the state office is urging members to volunteer to advance issues
affecting people 50-plus.
Caregiving remains a top priority. AARP Louisiana is working for policies that will assist the state’s 660,000 unpaid family caregivers.
AARP advocates helped pass a law, effective Jan. 1, allowing families to stay connected to their loved ones in a nursing home by installing a video camera in residents’ rooms.
Volunteer advocates are especially needed during the legislative session. If you are interested in getting involved, contact Bridget Ryan at email@example.com or at 225-376-1146.
