A recent AARP survey revealed that most older Americans are likely to be unprepared if a disaster like a wildfire, hurricane or tsunami strikes; many are unfamiliar with apps and technology that can help them prepare and survive a natural disaster.
From food to fitness, and YouTube to Twitter – there’s an app for that and AARP Hawai`i, AARP Alaska and Senior Planet are teaming up to offer free weekly online classes to teach kupuna how to use the technology on Friday mornings, starting Oct. 13.
Social Security is your money; you earned it through a lifetime of hard work. Nearly one in five Hawai‘i residents, 282,623 people, receive Social Security benefits, and 30% of residents 65 and older rely on the program for at least half of their income.
AARP is here to help you take on today – and every day - virtually. From sharing practical resources, to holding fun activities and events, AARP is providing opportunities to connect and help build an even stronger Hawaii. We hope you’ll join us!
The wildfires on Maui are a stark reminder that a disaster can happen at any time and that thinking about and planning for a fire, hurricane, tsunami or other disaster is an imperative, especially for kupuna and caregivers of kupuna.
If you want to help Maui residents who survived the Lahaina wildfires, financial donations are being taken by the Hawai`i Community Foundation, the Aloha United Way, the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army Hawaii
