AARP Community Advocacy and Programs
AARP is here to help Americans keep their families safe and protected. As the number of people who provide care and those who need care increase, AARP offers resources on caregiving, including culturally relevant information for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. AARP developed a caregiving guide, called “Prepare to Care”, that lays out initial steps to help the community get started. This includes guidance on how caregivers can make a family caregiving plan to bring peace of mind in case rapid response is needed to care for a loved one. Learn more at aarp.org/caregiving.
Fraud and Scam Prevention
AARP has protected the financial security of Americans 50-plus and continues to do so by offering trusted information and resources to the community-at-large. AARP created a Fraud Prevention Handbook that includes crucial information about common scams to keep the community alert and protected. AARP’s Fraud Watch Network helps people spot and avoid scams through a scam-tracking map and hosts a fraud helpline number for people to report fraud and scams.
Community Response to COVID-19
AARP sprang into action as COVID-19 hit and created a growing resource library to help vulnerable communities navigate major changes in their daily lives. AARP partnered with trusted media and community organizations to disseminate culturally relevant resources, especially to the Chinese and Asian American communities by providing in-language information. This includes media toolkits and in collaboration with trusted AAPI community organizations, educational webinars. AARP continues to strengthen this effort to combat misinformation around COVID-19 and stands as a trusted resource center to provide accurate and reliable information to communities nationwide.
