The Bayou State is home to 326,000 veterans, 138,000 of whom are 65 or older—and AARP Louisiana has their back. With caregiving resources, opportunities to meet and greet fellow veterans, and other kinds of support, AARP is committed to helping those who have served.

In addition, AARP Louisiana is seeking veterans interested in volunteering with the state office. One project involves retrofitting the home of a deserving veteran who needs modifications for access and mobility.

Ready to volunteer? Contact Troy J. Broussard, AARP associate state director for advocacy and outreach, at 225-376-1144 or
