In an email to our fine District 9th Senator and Assemblypersons I received a very responsive and encouraging reply.
Senator Connors, Assemblyman Rumpf & Assemblywoman Gove.
Thank you for your support for those of us living with Alzheimer’s diseases and our caregivers. I would ask you to add you co-sponsorship to the following bills that will broaden this support.
- A1463/S2877 Establishes New Jersey Caregiver Task Force to evaluate and provide recommendations on caregiver support services.
- S377/A918 Requires hospital patient’s medical record to include notation if patient has Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders.
- S1052/A1440 Provides gross income tax credit for certain expenses paid or incurred for care and support of qualifying senior family member; designated as Caregiver’s Assistance Act.
I would be happy to meet with you to discuss further.
