AARP named West Side Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal one of two “Capitol Caregivers” in New York for 2015, putting her among a select, bi-partisan group of elected officials from across the country to be recognized because they have fought for family caregivers. Dozens of AARP volunteers and other advocates joined at Manhattan’s Atlantic Grill to celebrate the state’s enactment of the CARE (Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable) Act. Assemblymember Rosenthal sponsored the CARE Act and guided the bill to a unanimous, 119-0 vote in the Assembly following 59-0 approval in the State Senate. Rosenthal is pictured at right, with Beth Finkel, State Director of AARP for New York.
