Changing Systems, Changing Lives
Pennsylvania is the 4th oldest state in the nation and more than 1.6 million people care for older parents, spouses or other loved ones, helping them to live independently in their own homes. Both AARP and the SeniorLAW Center are working together to support caregivers, their families and loved ones. Angela Foreshaw, Manager of State Operations and Community Outreach at AARP Pennsylvania and Nora Dowd Eisenhower, Director of Pro Bono Action for Community Impact at SeniorLAW Center will discuss some of the systemic responses to these realities, including the CARE Act, and guides to financial caregiving.
- Explain the story behind the Care Act and its impact in Pennsylvania.
- Describe one of the newest trends in caregiving, known as ‘financial caregiving’ and its relationship to enhancing the quality of life for all as we age.
- List the leaders in supporting older people Pennsylvania are and how can we collaborate across sectors to insure successful outcomes.
