(OPEN):
MISSISSIPPI HAS ABOUT 470-THOUSAND FAMILY-CAREGIVERS--WHO PROVIDE ROUGHLY 400-MILLION HOURS OF CARE, EACH YEAR, TO THEIR PARENTS, SPOUSES, AND FRIENDS.  WHAT'S MORE, THAT CARE IS WORTH FOUR-POINT-SEVEN-BILLION DOLLARS.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO JUST-RELEASED FIGURES FROM "A-A-R-P MISSISSIPPI"STATE-DIRECTOR, KIMBERLY L- CAMPBELL, ESQUIRE, EXPLAINS...

(CAMPBELL):
"
MISSISSIPPI'S FAMILY-CAREGIVERS ARE INVALUABLE TO THOSE WHOM THEY SUPPORT.  THAT'S WHY WE'RE COMMITTED TO ADVOCATING FOR THEM TO GET THE SUPPORT THAT THEY NEED.  AND, AFTER OUR ADVOCACY IN THIS YEAR'S STATE-LEGISLATIVE SESSION, OLDER MISSISSIPPIANS WILL BE BETTER-PROTECTED AGAINST ABUSE AND EXPLOITATION--AS THE 'GAP ACT' WILL TAKE EFFECT IN JANUARY.  IN THE NEW YEAR, WE'LL CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR COMMONSENSE SOLUTIONS THAT GIVE MISSISSIPPI'S FAMILY-CAREGIVERS MORE SUPPORT AND HELP, AT HOME.  SINCE NOVEMBER IS 'NATIONAL FAMILY-CAREGIVERS MONTH', WE ALSO INVITE THEM TO CONNECT WITH US--TO FIND HELPFUL RESOURCES."
