AARP Washington is part of a Social Isolation Work Group trying creative approaches to reaching lonely people, including a laptop lending library, virtual coffee klatches, and robotic pets.
In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, AARP Washington is providing information and resources to help older Washingtonians and those caring for them protect themselves from the virus and help prevent it from spreading to others.
This Black History Month and beyond, it’s important to look for and celebrate the little things that bring us joy, as well as the big achievements and accomplishments. The joy of resilience. Of caring for others and ourselves during trying times. Of sharing our stories and our assistance. Of connecting with others, even if at a distance. This is a Joy Supreme.
While 2020 was a year filled with uncertainty, municipalities and community organizations across Washington still managed to put older residents’ needs front and center. We welcomed two cities - Tacoma and Renton - to the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities, joining our previous cities of Seattle and Puyallup. Several non-profit agencies also received grants to address crucial pandemic-related issues, such as food insecurity and telehealth.
AARP has selected Redmond resident Bob DeWald as the 2020 recipient of the AARP Washington Andrus Award for Community Service -- the Association’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service.
