AARP was founded in 1958 by Ethel Percy Andrus, a retired educator from California. As we celebrate our 60th birthday, we stay true to her original mission by creating positive social change through advocacy, service and information for Delawareans age 50-plus, and their families. The drive, innovation and compassion of our founder continue to inspire our work as we dedicate ourselves to improving lives, standing up to injustice and transforming the marketplace. We aim to empower people to choose how they live as they age.
