We collaborate with other organizations to find policy solutions for problems facing older Americans. Some of these major initiatives include: a focus on jobs, unemployment and work opportunities for the 50-plus; an effort to change the way health care organizations and professionals interact with family caregivers; and a near decade-long push to transform health and health care through nursing.
AARP fought for public reporting of nursing home COVID-19 cases and deaths. Using this data, the AARP Public Policy Institute, in collaboration with the Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University in Ohio, created the AARP Nursing Home COVID-19 Dashboard.
AARP’s DataExplorer is an interactive data visualization tool for data on the 50-plus. Accessible to all, users select indicators, such as income, health, location, race or many more, and create a customized, downloadable visualization. Give it a try!
This scorecard ranks each state on its ability to provide long-term services and supports for older adults, people with disabilities and family caregivers, with the goal of improving service delivery and lives.
