AARP Kentucky is collaborating with the Thrive Center in Louisville, a new nonprofit focused on the needs of the aging population. Founded by a coalition of national senior-care organizations, the center has chosen memory care (dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive fitness) as a focus.

AARP Kentucky helped the center celebrate its first anniversary in October, delivers programming and has already offered a course on how to sign up for Medicare.

AARP Louisville’s volunteer members serve the Thrive Center as greeters. They inform visitors about the center’s cutting-edge technologies that can improve aging and mobility options.
