AARP Communications Volunteer Eunice LaFate has spent her career in art creating images that illustrate the struggles of women and empowering them to keep seeking for more. Her art is on display at her gallery in Wilmington. Paintings like “Women Balancing the World” (pictured) were meant to motivate and encourage women at all stages of life.
AARP applauded Congress for passing the bipartisan Fraud and Scam Reduction Act. The legislation, endorsed by AARP, is designed to address the pervasive increase and growing problem of scams and financial exploitation that threaten all Americans, and older Americans in particular.
Retirement requires solid financial planning, and that means building a comfortable nest egg. Yet more than 147,000 workers in the First State have no access to an employer- sponsored retirement plan.
AARP believes that people should be able to age with dignity and independence, and with a high-quality of life. That's why AARP submitted its recommendation to state leaders for the planning and designing of the new facility that will replace Delaware’s Home for the Chronically IlI in Smyrna, Delaware, highlighting the importance for long-term care facilities to promote safety, well-being, and infection control especially with today’s challenges in dealing with COVID. AARP is talking with state leaders and Delaware’s Division of Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities to encourage moving away from the traditional facility design. AARP recommended the incorporation of a state-of-the-art Green House Model into plans for the new Home for the Chronically III facility.
With an ongoing pandemic looming in the background and the need to bridge deep divides around racial and social injustices, this Black History Month provides an important and timely platform to remember and celebrate the contributions of Black Americans to their communities and our nation. In that spirit, AARP is highlighting a number of people who are building up their communities around the nation, proving that the efforts of one person can truly make an impact. And AARP believes that when we unite for the greater good, we thrive together!
AARP commends Governor Carney for expressing his support of Paid Family Leave in his State of the State Address today. The bill, (SB 1) will make life better for Delaware’s 129,000 unpaid family caregivers. As Delaware’s population ages, an increasing number of workers are taking on the role of caring for loved ones with a serious illness or disability. When those caregivers are also employed, balancing the two roles can be a challenge. SB 1 will increase the quality of life for Delawareans and keep them working, productive and independent.
