Why? The census directly impacts funding for key programs that affect your loved one.
The census is a headcount that occurs by law every 10 years, beginning in 1790. The census law is found in Article 1 Section 2 of the constitution. This law goes beyond any hidden agenda of any administration, despite what you may hear in the media. On December 31, 2020 the President of the United States will get a headcount. Nothing more, nothing less.
As caregivers, we can play a role in educating our senior on the importance of being counted, on the privacy safeguards in place, on all the ways the 2020 census can be completed, and we can help them complete it.
