Care-FULL Conversations: Everything is Temporary Podcast

As we all know, the journey of caregiving is comprised of twists and turns, ups and downs, joys and sorrows. Dealing with the changing landscape is challenging indeed. Perhaps by realizing that everything is temporary, we would be more tolerant of the bad times and more appreciative of the good times. A perspective certainly worthy of consideration.

AARP Advocacy In New Jersey

AARP believes that no one’s possibilities should ever be limited by their age and seeks to find new solutions so that more people can live and age as they choose. In just the past four months, with the support of AARP members, advocacy volunteers and coalition partners we have achieved noteworthy success on behalf of our 1.3 million Garden State members. AARP members and volunteers have made thousands of calls, sent almost 6,000 emails, conducted numerous legislative visits with our elected representatives and organized two lobby days at the New Jersey State Capitol. Your actions demonstrate the power of AARP and are the secret sauce to achieving positive change in the lives of not only the 50 plus but for all New Jerseyans.

How and Why Walking May Be the Key to a Longer Life

As relatively easy and straightforward as walking is (no gym fee or swimsuit needed, for starters), there’s mounting evidence that you should get serious, very serious, about doing it regularly. Why? From reducing your risk of certain cancers to keeping off extra pounds to strengthening your memory, a daily habit of lacing up and heading out gives you almost unparalleled health bang for your buck.

HB 4900 Press Conference: Statement by Ryan Gruenenfelder

Good morning. I am Ryan Gruenenfelder, Director of Advocacy & Outreach for AARP Illinois.  I want to share my own personal story as an example why this legislation is needed.  In 1977, when I was 2 years old, I was given a peanut butter cookie when it was unbeknownst to anyone I was allergic to peanuts.  I went into anaphylactic shock and became unable to breathe.  Fortunately, my caregiver was able to rush me to the hospital in Sparta, Illinois quickly enough for those in the ER to save my life.  From that point forward throughout my childhood, my parents constantly had epi-pens in their cars and in the house in case it became necessary to try to save my life once again.  I cannot imagine the pain and fear my parents felt that day, and I feel fortunate they were able to have access to the life-saving drug I needed to protect me.  That same drug recently saw a 508% increase in price according to a GAO study.  Today’s children may not be as fortunate as I was in the 1970s.
