New York City Facing a Caregiving Crisis

New York committed an atrocious 10 penalties, lost the turnover battlewith four to Tennessee’s zeroand failed to adjust accordingly to Tennessee’s game plan. Marty Mornhinweg did the offense no favors in his play-calling. He leaned heavily on the passing attack, despite the fact that Geno Smith was being destroyed every time he stepped back in the pocket, and abandoned a successful rushing attack in the second half. Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports First-Half Analysis for New York Pass Offense: Geno Smith’s play continues to be a roller-coaster ride. The rookie was efficient, as he completed eight of 13 passes for 120 yards, but he committed three killer turnovers thathanded the Titans great field position. Tennessee scored 21 points off Smith’s mistakes, which has beenthe difference in the game so far. Smith needs to make better decisions if the Jets are to compete in the second half. Run Offense: Bilal Powell has continued his terrific play from last week thus far. Powell carried the ball nine times for 51 yardsand an impressive 5.7 yards per rush. Powell did a great job fighting for extra yardage and finding holes against an underrated Tennessee front. New York’s offensive line also did a nice job getting push up front. Pass Defense: The Jets’ defense was continually burned by bad field position in the first half. The unit couldn’t find a way to stop the versatile Jake Locker either. The secondary’s coverage collapsed twice at the goal line, giving up two easy touchdown passes. Despite getting consistent pressure in the pocket, Locker was able to use his legs to evade the rush and extend plays. Run Defense: The Jets’ run defense was once again impressive in the first half of action. The front seven never allowed Chris Johnson to find space and they continually limited him to short gains.

New York Jets vs. Tennessee Titans: Live Grades and Analysis for New York

“Providing crucial care for older relatives is a reality for many New Yorkers and it’s also a point of major struggle as they look for resources and support,” said Beth Finkel, State Director for AARP in New York State.”Caregivers in New York City are strained and stressed, and they are looking for help.” The caregiving crisis in NYC: In New York City, the lack of support is all too evident for caregivers, the AARP survey of 50+ voters in NYC finds: 40% of New York City’s residents 50+ have provided care for a relative, friend or spouse who is ill, frail, elderly or has a disability. 68% do it themselves, or are able to enlist the help of friends and family, while 23% pay for a helper such as an aide, nurse or housekeeper. 59% say the caregiving puts a strain on their quality of life, including financial hardship, emotional stress and stress at work. 15% say they’ve been treated unfairly at work because of their caregiving responsibilities. 80% want New York City’s elected officials to strengthen laws and regulations and fund services to better support family caregivers. “Family members often juggle the care for relatives amongst one another, with the coming demographic shift, there will be fewer family members to pitch in and help,” added Finkel. “Today’s caregivers may wind up without a caregiver themselves; making tackling this issue at the state and city level all the more important.” Shrinking number of caregivers: A recent AARP analysis finds the caregiving bubble in New York is about to burst, meaning there will be fewer family members to provide care for older relatives. In 2010 there was a potential pool of 6.6 people aged 45-65 per one person aged 80 who would likely need care at some point. By 2030, potential caregivers in the state will shrink to 4.8 to each person over 80, and in 2050, there will be just 3.5 people to provide the care. AARP has been working to bring the issue to the attention of the Mayoral and City Council candidates in NYC, holding a series of debates, voter engagement efforts, and grassroots activities. AARP members are expected to account for half of all votes cast in the NYC General Elections. While AARP does not endorse candidates, have a PAC, or give money to campaigns or political parties, the non-partisan membership organization does provide straight-forward information on the issues to 50-plus voters, the media and the general public.
