Many communities are not designed to serve people of all ages. So AARP Ohio is working with local leaders and residents to help make cities, towns, and counties more “livable”. That means advocating for more green spaces, safer roads and sidewalks, reliable transportation options, affordable housing and much more.

Vote
State election officials and AARP Ohio are working to ensure voters know how to safely cast their ballots this fall amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Social Security
COLUMBUS, OHIO— A new AARP survey, released in conjunction with Social Security’s 85th anniversary, confirms that Americans highly value Social Security, and even more so due to the pandemic. The vast majority of Americans – 93% of Republicans, 99% of Democrats, and 92% of Independents – see Social Security as an important government program, and 56% believe it is even more important for retirees in light of the coronavirus pandemic. In a letter sent yesterday to President Trump, AARP asked him to explain his plan to replace Social Security funding.

AARP is intensifying its efforts to protect the lives of nursing home residents and staff. Recently, we have developed a five point plan to prevent further COVID-19 deaths in the nation’s nursing homes and need to communicate this plan to Congress as soon as possible before they leave on August recess. More than 56,000 people living and working in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities in the United States have died as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, and Governor DeWine informed us that Ohio is experiencing a record increase of COVID-19 cases. It is extremely important that nursing homes adjust their safety precautions accordingly with the recent spike in cases across the nation. Read on to learn about AARP’s Five Point Plan to ensure the health and wellness of residents, families and staff.

Quarantine has made it especially difficult to eat right and exercise effectively; ordering food online is safe and easy but not always nutritious, and working out at a gym may be putting one’s health at risk.  While some restaurants and businesses are open, it’s important to recognize that Ohioans must continue to socially distance as much as possible for everyone’s safety.  AARP Ohio has developed two virtual series to help you change up your quarantine diet and workout routine.  Read on to learn about how our virtual offerings can contribute to positive lifestyle changes!

Nursing homes are beginning to resume in-person visitation as coronavirus restrictions relax across several states. Governor DeWine announced that outdoor visits will be allowed at nursing homes and assisted living facilities who meet certain requirements as early as July 20, and AARP Ohio wants to ensure that all precautions are being taken in response to this change. It is important to recognize that there will be new limitations on when, where, and for how long you can visit your loved one. AARP has put together five key questions that you should ask nursing homes and long-term care facilities before visiting your loved ones that will protect all residents, staff and visitors.
