AARP Wisconsin

Leading Positive Social Change for Wisconsinites Over 50
We may be isolated, but we don’t have to be alone. AARP Community Connections is a new website that offers steps to find help – or give it – during the coronavirus pandemic. At a time when people are self-isolating, the website connects you to support in your community. It also enables you to join or organize your own online mutual aid group to stay connected, share ideas and help your family, neighbors and those most affected by COVID-19.

The spread of the coronavirus across our country has created a very stressful environment for all Americans and especially older people and those with underlying health conditions who are at heightened risk. During these difficult days, I want to assure you that AARP is actively engaged in our nation’s response to the outbreak, and we are working hard to help our members, their families and broader community understand how to protect themselves.

Some of the steps we are taking include:

We have postponed our “Get to Know AARP” volunteer recruitment and orientation events that were scheduled for April and May. While convening events such as this is a core part of our mission, we have changed our approach in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We understand that you may still be interested in finding volunteer opportunities at this time, both with AARP Wisconsin and with other organizations. Here are some ways you can help:

One of the most common scams is government impostors, where you may get a phone call, an email, or a visit to your home from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration, the Internal Revenue Service or some other government agency. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission recently reported victims lost nearly $153 million to government impostor scams in 2019 – a staggering amount.
