Portraits of Care
AARP is looking for stories of hope, love and dedication. AARP believes family caregiver stories aren’t celebrated nearly enough. Because of your tireless efforts, older parents, spouses and other loved ones can remain in their homes. It’s a labor of love, to be sure, and sometimes more than a full-time job. It’s time the world got a better picture of just what it means to be you. To honor and recognize family caregivers all around the country, AARP will randomly select one caregiver from each of the 53 U.S. states and territories to receive a Portrait of Care, an artist’s painting of you and your loved one. Share your story and photo with us at www.aarp.org/iheartcaregivers .
The AARP "I Love Caregivers" campaign, will show that family caregivers need everyone's support. Across the country, AARP is fighting for family caregivers because of all that they do to help older parents, spouses and other loved ones live independently at home. Family caregivers deserve recognition and support. That’s why AARP is working for help at home, workplace protections, training and more.
