The Nevada Legislature is considering a bill that would support family caregivers who work. Your legislator needs to hear from you TODAY! Across Nevada, nearly 350,000 family caregivers help their parents, spouses and other loved ones remain at home—where they want to be. These family caregivers take on huge responsibilities that can be overwhelming, stressful and exhausting. Most also juggle full- or part-time jobs.
That’s why AARP is urging the Nevada Legislature to pass a bill, AB90, to allow employees to use their earned sick leave time to care for family members. Many family caregivers are forced to leave their jobs to care for their loved ones. Lost income and benefits on average for family caregivers are estimated at over $300,000 over a lifetime.
Contact YOUR legislator and tell them to support AB90 TODAY! This bill is a commonsense step to support family caregivers who work. No one should have to worry about losing their job because they have to take their loved one to the doctor.
