We here at Freedom Home Care frequent the AARP website on a regular basis. We’ve found that it’s a great resource for anyone over the age of 50. Whether it be for health-related concerns, retirement questions or even travel recommendations, the folks at AARP have us covered.
Today, while we were perusing the site, we stumbled on a call-to-action that piqued our attention. AARP places a lot of importance on the caregivers in our aging loved ones’ lives and have asked that visitors to the site share their personal stories about those integral people.
“If you have a story that you want to share, AARP is listening,” the editors say. “Personal stories illuminate your top issues and help us learn what is important to you, so we can continue to serve you and your family. They help us fine-tune our education and advocacy efforts and calls for action on issues that matter most to you. We read and learn from every story and may use yours – with your permission – to brief legislators, inspire other readers and more.”
Therefore, we are putting out the call to those of you in our patient circles. We ask that you let AARP know why your caregiver is indispensable. It can serve as a big thank you to those who help.
So head to the AARP website and submit your experiences. We imagine you’ll enjoy letting the ink – and gratitude – flow.
