AARP local offices have their work cut out for them in the state of Florida, where the percentage of residents age 65 or older is higher than anywhere else in America. And as retiring baby boomers flock to the Sunshine State, that percentage is expected to grow and give rise to challenges facing all older adults in our rapidly aging nation. In today’s show Jeff Johnson, State Director of AARP Florida, talks about AARP policy priorities in the state and the fate of long-term care and Medicaid if Tom Price (R-GA) is confirmed as Secretary of Health and Human Services. Jeff also talks about aging in America vs. other cultures, what you don’t know about AARP and his side project: the Love Not Fear Movement.
