New Hampshire News

Northeast region

In one of the fastest-aging states in the nation, AARP is pushing to shift more taxpayer dollars earmarked for long-term care to services that can help people continue to live independently in their own homes as they age.

A recent AARP scorecard shows New Hampshire ranks 43rd among the states in the percentage of funding spent on such services. Currently, about 80 percent of the state's long-term care money goes to institutional care, and only 20 percent to home- and community-based services.

Increasing the allocation for cost-effective in-home care is AARP New Hampshire's top priority for 2012, and the state office is asking members to help. Volunteers will speak with legislators, attend public hearings and hold lawmakers accountable for their votes. To get involved, email nh@aarp.org.Back to Article
