About AARP Maine

AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, membership organization with a social mission. We envision a society in which everyone ages with dignity and purpose.

AARP Maine is working to enhance the lives of Mainers 50+ through advocacy, information sharing, volunteerism and service. Our staff and volunteers advocate on issues such as caregiving, livable communities, affordable utilities and consumer fraud, to name a few.  We have resources and information to help you make informed health and retirement decisions.

AARP Maine is also proud to have volunteers throughout the state working on issues of importance to all Mainers and their families.  From York to Madawaska, we are 230,000 members strong and we're in your community.  Let's work together to bring positive social change to Maine!
