OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - AARP Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service are teaming up to help thousands of family caregivers in communities across the state.

The partnership is geared toward providing current and future caregivers with the resources and education they need to care for their loved ones.

AARP Oklahoma State Director Sean Voskuhl says there are more than 600,000 family caregivers in Oklahoma. With thousands of baby boomers now at retirement age in the state, Voskuhl says having resources for family caregivers is an issue most Oklahomans will face in the future.

The new partnership will develop resources, tool kits and educational opportunities focused on caregiving. Educating the public about the CARE Act, a law that provides new resources and support for Oklahoma caregivers, will also be a focus of the partnership.
