AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, with a membership of more than 37 million, that helps people turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthens communities and fights for the issues that matter most to families such as healthcare, employment security and retirement planning. We advocate for consumers in the marketplace by selecting products and services of high quality and value to carry the AARP name as well as help our members obtain discounts on a wide range of products, travel, and services.
The Dementia and Chronic Conditions Series Toolkits are designed to improve support for people living with cognitive impairment or dementia and other chronic conditions. These resources will assist people working in the community, partners, families and carers to provide better support to the person in areas such as diagnosis of dementia and on-going management of their health.
We all rely on drugs and medical devices to improve the quality of life for us and our loved ones. But sometimes drug and device companies put unsafe products on the market, ones that give us conditions that are worse than what we needed treatment for originally. When that happens, Drugwatch is here to help.
