Former AARP Arkansas State Director Herb Sanderson thinks a lot about the 67-year-old woman who came into an Area Agency on Aging in the 1970s with no appointment, asking for a job.
What has AARP Arkansas done for you lately? Despite the pandemic, AARP racked up important state legislative accomplishments in 2021 to help people 50 and older.
AARP has a goal to protect vulnerable adults and provide their caregivers with the tools necessary to make important decisions. When an older adult plans for the future, they often consider what would happen if they develop difficulty in making decisions. For instance, this might happen if they have a disease that is progressive and could affect their ability to think clearly.
AARP Arkansas offers many resources for older adults, including career networking, advocacy for family caregivers and programs to avoid fraud and identity theft.
AARP is now accepting applications for the 2019 Community Challenge grant program to fund “quick-action” projects that spark change in local communities. The grant program, which is now in its third year, is part of AARP’s nationwide Livable Communities initiative, which aims to make communities great places to live for everyone.
