Larry Saxxon of San Francisco, a member of AARP California's Executive Council, graduated today from AARP’s Volunteer Leadership Institute (VLI). This is the third class of VLI, dubbed the “Digital VLI.” It was specially designed to appeal to the new breed of volunteer – those who are tech savvy, younger, and who may still be in the workforce. Larry was one of 33 exceptional volunteers from across the country who completed the course.
Every day, more than 4,000,000 Californians perform a great labor of love, caring for older parents, spouses and other loved ones so they can stay at home—where they want to be—and out of costly institutions.
Are you taking care of a loved one – an older adult or an adult with a disability – who needs help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, or household shopping? Many individuals who need caregiving assistance rely on family, friends, or other unpaid caregivers. In fact, family support can allow seniors and individuals with disabilities to stay in their homes and communities. But sadly, many caregivers are unaware of the resources or support available to them, toiling away without the help they desperately need.
Are you a theatre lover? We have an AARP member discount just for you at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City! On select dates, the Kirk Douglas Theatre is offering AARP members and their guests a special ticket offer* on different words for the same thing.
We have a limited number of FREE "Golden Tickets" available for the Second Wind Tour coming to San Francisco on Wednesday, April 16th and Los Angeles on Friday, April 18th. The tour, inspired by Dr. Bill Thomas’ new book, will offer a unique theater experience blending the spoken word, innovative set design, film, and music to start a conversation about "life after adulthood."
After speaking with Donna Davis, it would be difficult not to be excited about the idea of becoming an entrepreneur. Her official title is Regional Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Region IX, but she calls herself the region’s “Chief Evangelist,” an apt term for a woman who is a leader, motivator, and tireless advocate for small businesses in California, Arizona, Hawaii, Nevada, and Guam.
