At the NY State level, we will be working with our legislators to pass the following:
-----Caregiving (two parts): for funding increases that assist family/relatives/others who help with difficult tasks that allow
-----people to remain at home longer (and complement the Older Americans Act) and a new bill [the CARE ACT] that would work with hospitals to properly instruct care providers in homecare (before patients leave the hospital);
-----Development of a "Work and Save" plan. This would allow small businesses to establish a retirement plan, that's portable, for their employees without burdening either side.
At both levels, there is the need for continuing a strong advocacy presence, plus education of legislators on the importance of these issues for all our citizens. If you can help out occasionally - even with a phone call to a legislator - please contact Bob O'Connor, our local Legislative Advocacy Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 637-3920. Thank you.
