Approximately 70% of Americans age 65 and older will require long-term care at some point in their lives, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

Caregiving is a situation that affects thousands of Americans across the country on a daily basis. Many caregivers are already employed full time, have other family responsibilities such as children, and require assistance with their caregiving duties.

YourCare360 is a helpful service available to all NYSUT members (both in-service and retiree) that offers online access to caregiving guidance and answers to the many questions that confront family caregivers. For additional information click on the green button below.

High Ozone Level Warnings

Public health officials caution against strenuous outdoor activity when ozone levels are high. To help people decide when to curtail activity, DEC forecasts ozone pollution and, in cooperation with the New York State Department of Health, posts warnings if dangerous conditions are expected to occur. These warnings are also aired through the media and are available online from the
Air Quality Forecast webpage or toll-free New York State Air Quality Hotline: 1-800-535-1345. You can also sign up for AQI alerts sent through the GovDelivery system.

 Another resource is, Types in your zip code to receive the current air quality. The circle is graded and immediately one knows the score, which for Latham is 48, moderate. This site also offers resources on AQI and health among other topics. Attached is an Air Quality Flag Program Fact Sheet.
