AARP's Caregiving Resource Center Just Went Mobile

Caring for yourself, your parents or a loved one just a whole lot easier.

We've put our Caregiving Resource Center from our website into our AARP iPad app so you can have all the housing options, legal and respite care information you need at your fingertips.

Join the discussion: Caregivers - Challenges and Advice

How do you get it? Easy!


  1. Grab your iPad and click here>> App Store for AARP.
  2. Download (psst, it's FREE!).
  3. The first square you see in the grid should say Caregiving Resource Center (see image above).
  4. If it's not, just swipe left and you'll see it (or click the Add Widgets button).
  5. If you already have the AARP iPad app uploaded, to get the caregiving options on it you need to do an update.

Our tools, checklists, blog and videos are all there for you to use to help you provide the best level of care.

Let us know how we're doing and what you'd like to see in future versions of the mobile Caregiving Resource Center in the comments below. And for all caregiving related news, be sure to follow @AARPfamily or subscribe to our TakeCare blog.

I have been both a live-in caregiver and a long-distance caregiver. In fact, currently, I’m really both.
