AARP Member Opinion Research

The views of Virginia AARP members on health care quality, long-term care, caregiving, payday lending, and transportation are explored in this series of reports. Major findings include the following:

  • About eight in ten (79%) say they support the Virginia legislature increasing funds for the Caregiver Grant Program to $1 million per year.
  • The vast majority (93%) say that strengthening the enforcement of quality standards in nursing homes is important.
  • More than seven in ten Virginia AARP members (71%) indicate they support capping the annual rate payday lenders can charge at 36 percent APR.
  • One in five Virginia AARP members (21%) report health problems and disabilities that curtail their ability to get to where they need and want to go.
  • More than nine in ten (91%) indicate that it is important for the state to increase funding for public transportation programs that serve older persons and those with disabilities.
  • More than four in five Virginia AARP members (81%) indicate it is important for Virginia to improve coordination of human services transportation systems.
