En español | Sometimes, it’s easier to just ask. That’s why AARP has a dedicated, toll-free family caregiving line for people taking care of a loved one. Our agents can’t provide specific advice to callers, but they can suggest resources on a variety of topics, including:

Agents are available to take calls Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET at 1-877-333-5885. The support line is also available in Spanish, at 1-888-971-2013.

They can also provide referrals to the government’s Eldercare Locator, state and federal agencies serving caregivers and older Americans, the Alzheimer’s Association and the Parkinson’s Foundation.

AARP also has an online caregiving community where caregivers can join, for free, to talk with other caregivers and get answers from experts in the community. Facebook users can visit the AARP Family Caregivers Discussion Group to connect, share stories and get answers to caregiving questions.

You don’t have to be an AARP member to call the support line or join the online communities. We’re here to help.
