16 May NAC-AARP & Capital Caring Health
This week on Community Matters we are highlighting 2 agencies that are helping families facing extra struggles during COVID-19.
The first is the National Alliance for Caregiving, and we are speaking with C. Grace Whiting, President & CEO, and Susan Reinhard, Senior Vice President, Public Policy Institute, AARP about how family caregivers are experiencing increased financial strain during this pandemic and what we as a community can do to help and what resources are available to them.
The second interview is with Marcia Fairbanks, Director of Family Services with Capital Caring Health, as we discuss tips for older adults isolating at home or in assisted living. This population already struggles with loneliness, but this pandemic is heightening that and there are ways the community can help!
