CHARLOTTE- Every week, right here in the Queen City, AARP offers a wide range of free programs and activities that can help you improve the quality of your life. From getting your financial house in order to learning how to safely use tablet devices and smartphones, AARP in Charlotte is committed to helping you live your best life ever!

Life Reimagined
The life you’ve dreamed of having is actually very possible. To make it real doesn’t require major tasks or grand gestures. It’s about making small and simple steps to help you figure out what you really want, and then starting to make that happen. Join us for a Life Reimagined Check Up and discover the real possibilities within yourself.
