We're highlighting the cutting-edge programs and successful strategies used by the 2018 recipients of n4a's Aging Innovations and Achievement Awards in this weekly spotlight feature. This week we're focusing on Loudoun County Area Agency on Aging's Caring for the Caregiver Program, winner in the Caregiving category.
The partial government shutdown will enter its third week on Saturday. The shutdown affects seven federal agencies, or 25 percent of all federal discretionary spending. The agencies that are primarily responsible for administering aging services across the board—such as Health and Human Services, Administration on Aging and CMS—are not affected by the impasse. However, as other critical government programs face weeks without funding, we expect that there could be implications for some older adults.
