This week, AARP volunteers from North Carolina were joined by volunteers from other states and national experts in outreach as they conducted Facebook event as well as a "Fraud University" to better educate people about the wide array of frauds and scams that target older adults.
RALEIGH – When it comes to our retirements. the Department of the State Treasurer is critical because it administers the public employee retirement systems for more than 900,000 North Carolinians, as well as the 401 (k), 457, and 403 (b) supplemental retirement plans for public employees.
RALEIGH – Thanks to the work of AARP advocates in North Carolina, nursing home patients and their loved ones may soon be able to visit in person. With key COVID-19 metrics stabilizing in the state, and strong infection prevention and control requirements in place, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services issued a Secretarial Order updating visitation guidelines for nursing homes to allow indoor visitation.
When it comes to aging, there is no place like home. A 2016 survey by AARP found 76% of people age 50+ strongly agree with the statement, “I would like to remain in my current home as long as possible.” The AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities can help people do so by assisting counties, cities, towns and rural areas best meet the needs of residents of all ages. During this national health crisis, age-friendly communities offer added benefits.
RALEIGH – North Carolina State University senior Josh Smith is thinking beyond just landing a first job when he graduates this spring. He plans to utilize the skills he developed at the University to push for needed policy improvements in order to help older adults live the lives they want to live as they age.
Reaching Across NC: Livable Community Connections is a statewide conference on “Age-Friendly" Communities being held November 19-20 at the Brookstown Inn, 200 Brookstown Ave., in Winston-Salem.
