The 2015 survey conducted by AARP shows that most people over the age of 45 across the state are in support of helping unpaid family caregivers. Of over 380,000 registered voters in the survey, most support naming family caregivers on medical records, and teaching the family caregivers simple medical procedures that could be done in the home. Results from the survey showed that Iowans realize that they are family caregivers, or will be in the future, and Iowans recognize the need to support unpaid caregivers in their communities.
