The caregiver phenomenon is becoming more common as the senior population grows. In 2009, there were 2.8 million caregivers in New York. Do you have an idea of how to better support caregivers or make their work easier? Sign up
for the NYS Listening Tour for New York residents who provide services to senior adults in their communities.
The tour's purpose: to gather insight from families, neighbors, community leaders, elected officials, Area Agencies on Aging, health care professionals, service providers, advocates and anyone else who has experience caring for older adults who need services and supports so they can live independently within the community. The "tour" is being sponsored by AARP, CSCS-NYC and NYSCRC, along with the support of organizations like the
Association on Aging in New York.
Information gathered from people who provide support for older adults in their communities will be shared in a report to New York State lawmakers.
