Caregiving

Vegetarian Chile Rellenos Recipe for Mother’s Day
Austin City Council is proposing code amendments to enhance housing options and support transit investments.
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.
Family caregiving, prescription drug prices, and Social Security Administration funding are among issues AARP Texas staff and volunteers are discussing with members of Congress from the Lone Star State.
AARP Texas fought hard this legislative session on issues important to older Texans and their families, and lawmakers listened. From prescription drug affordability and funding for adult protective services to high-speed internet access, and much more, we achieved several victories for Texans age 50-plus.
Lawmakers can pass legislation to shape our state as a place where Texans can live and age well into retirement, whether in the big cities or rural communities.

Volunteering, by definition, is a person who voluntarily undertakes or expresses a willingness to undertake a service. What that service is, varies for everyone, but for me, it means giving my time to an organization I am passionate about, like AARP. Growing up, I always enjoyed giving back to the community because I knew what a difference it can make not just for others, but also to the volunteer.
