Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry) issued the following statement after receiving the AARP Capitol Caregivers Award.
“I would like to thank AARP for their commitment and advocacy for individuals caring for a loved one. I am honored to be recognized by AARP with a Capitol Caregiver award for the work we were able to do to pass the Uniform Power of Attorney Act last year.”
“This legislation is essential as it expands power of attorney laws so that individuals and families are protected when making important financial decisions in times of need. These kinds of protections are imperative as they allow caregivers to do what they do best: providing the very best direct care to family members in need.”
“I remain committed to doing all that I can to ensure the rights of caregivers and families are focused on providing the best care possible and I look forward to working with AARP now and in the future.”
