Diagnosed with dementia and without a job, volunteering for the issues and people she cares about the most has kept Jackie Coleman happier than ever before. Shortly after Coleman lost her dream job as a disability rights lawyer due to her diagnosis, she decided to become an AARP member and soon after that a volunteer with the AARP California Capitol Response Team, “where I make sure that we get approved the right laws that benefit those who are 50 years of age and over.”  Her passion for advocacy also motivated her to become a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Association.
