For the first time since AARP began publishing the Scorecard in 2011, more than half of Medicaid long-term care dollars nationwide for older adults and people with physical disabilities went to home- and community-based services instead of nursing homes and other institutions.
Ashland volunteer Anne Bellegia has been selected by AARP Oregon to receive the 2023 Andrus Award for Community Service, the Association’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award. Recipients across the nation were chosen for the award, named for AARP founder Ethel Percy Andrus, for enhancing the lives of AARP members and prospective members, improving the community, and inspiring others to volunteer.
Six grants totaling $65,000 were awarded to Oregon nonprofits this year, as a part of AARP's 2023 Community Grant Challenge. The program funds projects that improve quality of live for people of all ages. This year's winners will focus on improving public spaces, digital connections, equity, transportation and housing.
