Refresh your safety awareness skills and attend a TRIAD-sponsored seminar in your area this summer.
AARP Iowa is teaming up with Habitat for Humanity to create a better community. The two programs, Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity's A Brush with Kindness, and the Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity's Rock the Block!® work to revitalize neighborhoods while making homes safer, more affordable and accessible.
AARP Wyoming is working with several organizations in Casper and Natrona County to reduce the incidence of fires and falls in residents’ homes. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries for adults age 65 and older.
Today, more than one in four adults in America is caring for a loved one who needs help, usually a parent.  Here in Connecticut, more than 486,000 residents are providing unpaid care for a loved one.  In fact, if you aren't already a caregiver, chances are, you will be one day.  Many times an adult child is cast suddenly into this role after an aging parent suffers a fall or a medical crisis.  But more often, a parent or loved one’s need for support happens gradually and may not be so obvious. The holidays are a great time to assess how elderly family members are doing to determine if they may need some extra help.
