Thank you, State Legislators

Last week the General Assembly passed Earned Paid Sick Leave legislation allowing family caregivers to earn time off that they can use to take care of their loved ones. 

AARP- Rhode Island advocated for passage of this legislation that will help family caregivers take the necessary time off to care for their loved one in times of need, so that older Rhode Islanders can age in their home and community. 

AARP-RI’s survey results found that 84% of those surveyed wanted earned paid sick leave for caregiving. The State legislature listened to that clear message.

At AARP, we believe supporting family caregivers is a top priority for all of us. Help us thank our state legislators for passing Earned Paid Sick Leave legislation.


Thank your State Senator and Representative for passing the Earned Paid Sick Leave bills S-290 and H-5413.
