The pictures, maybe you’ve seen them. Sons and daughters, moms and dads, husbands and wives – separated by a glass window. This is how some family members are visiting loved ones living in Minnesota’s nursing home and assisted living facilities during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. And as heartbreaking as these pictures are, worse are the stories of people dying alone and of goodbyes not said.
We’re writing with an important message to let you know that we have canceled our external events until further notice. While convening events is a core part of our mission, we have changed our approach in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
AARP Minnesota urges lawmakers to pass legislation aimed at curbing high drug prices that drive up insurance premiums and government spending on Medicare and Medicaid which increase costs for all Americans.
Americans shouldn’t have to pay the highest prices in the world for the medicines they need. Minnesotans depend on their prescriptions – but from cancer treatments to EpiPens, and beyond, drug companies' skyrocketing prices are pushing life-saving treatments out of reach for those who need them. Medications don’t work if people can’t afford them. It's time to Stop Rx Greed.
AARP is supporting legislation aimed at lowering prescription drug prices and forcing pharmaceutical companies to justify large increases.
Caring for a parent, spouse, or other loved one can be a 24/7 job that is emotionally, physically and financially difficult. That’s why AARP works tirelessly to support family caregivers, striving to make your big responsibilities a little bit easier.
Not sure which Medicare plans and options are right for you or a loved one? AARP is here to help connect you to the resources that may make it easier for you to decide what’s right for you.
