Shirley Bell, 66, is fiercely independent and is used to doing things for herself.  But six years ago, when she became the primary caregiver for her mother, she realized that sometimes everyone needs a little help.
AARP is working to ensure people can live in their homes and communities for as long as possible by advocating for more resources and services to assist those who need care. But we need your help.
Every day, a silent army of 478,000 Arkansans performs a true labor of love: caring for aging parents, spouses, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends... so they can remain in their homes. These family caregivers wouldn’t have it any other way... but are on duty 24/7, usually without pay, and often can’t even take a break.
