Legislative Health Caucus to discuss Caregiving and the Aging on August 4
How can Alaska Seniors get the services they need, and how can the legislature help?
The Joint Legislative Health Caucus will meet August 4 to address Caregiving and the Aging in Alaska. The number of Alaskans over sixty is expected to more than triple by 2025, so it is imperative Alaskans understand and begin to address the needs of an aging population now.
Presenters from medical services, AARP Alaska, Older Person Action Group, and the state Division of Senior and Disability Services, along with private Alaska care providers, family and senior recipients, will discuss seniors' hoped for outcomes, how to meet them and the costs of either meeting or not meeting those outcomes.
