Yes, those are universal concerns, and can be major problems for seniors.  On Monday, August 20, Locust

Grove AARP Chapter 5239 welcomes Genéa Luck, 

Associate State Director of Multicultural Outreach for

the AARP Virginia State Office as speaker.

Ms. Luck will share  the latest information on the

following topics: Modify Your Home for Comfort and Safety; Protect Yourself from Fraud and Identity Theft;

and Social Security: Understanding Your Benefits– all

of vital importance to seniors.​

Ms Luck delivers community based workshops for the 50+populations across the Commonwealth. She is charged with developing stronger community based engagements to provide insight to all the unique offerings of the AARP.

AARP’s 2018 National legislative goals are focused on protecting and strengthening Medicare and other health care benefits, supporting family caregivers, maximizing the independence of older adults, helping people who are 50 and older to lead healthier lives, securing Social Security long-term solvency and adequacy, improving retirement income security, and ensuring that individuals of all ages have the financial resilience to take control of their retirement.

This is a meeting not to be missed, where current information, often hard to find, will be presented.  Join AARP at 9:30 am for morning snacks and fellowship.  The meeting begins at 10 am.
