General Resources

For most older people, their main resource is their area agency on aging (AAA). It
can supply details and referrals on many topics. To find your local area agency on aging or
the one serving someone you are trying to help, call the toll-free Eldercare Locator 1-800-
677-1116 or visit the web page of the Federal Administration on Aging at www.aoa.gov.
Many associations promote the interests of older adults. The best known–and the
largest–is the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). You can join if you are
over age 50. AARP has regional and local groups nationwide, and it provides booklets and
other resources on virtually any topic of interest to older persons. Look in the telephone
directory for the nearest group. Or contact: American Association of Retired Persons, 601
E Street, NW Washington, DC 20049 (202) 434-2277 or 1-800-424-3410 web: www.aarp.org
