Nothing Fishy About CARP

CARP's logo

Many of us at that “certain age” have heard about the CARP organization. You can learn a little more about CARP on their Wikipedia page too.

“CARP is a national, non-partisan, non-profit organization committed to a ‘New Vision of Aging for Canada’ promoting social change that will bring financial security, equitable access to health care and freedom from discrimination.” CARP’s mandate…”is to promote and protect the interests, rights and quality of life for Canadians as we age.”

The CARP website http://www.carp.ca/ is jam-packed with many excellent articles and news stories of special interest to “seniors” of all ages. There are several features such as your finances, your health, and your rights, along with many benefits and events to keep you accurately informed and fully engaged in enjoying life as a “senior”.

It is certainly well worth a visit to their website, and I am confident that once you explore it a little, that you will find it very helpful and informative, and that you will bookmark the site in your Internet browser to make it easy to visit it often.

They have even provided a link to Zoomer Radio so that you can listen to some age-appropriate radio during your visit to the website.

Also, be sure to check out CARP’s upcoming event in April 2013. CARP’s Mississauga Zoomer Fair will be held on April 18th from 10am to 2pm at the Sheridan Centre. It will feature 35+ exhibits with lots of helpful information from organizations in the community. Visit CARP’s website for more details.

So, if you’re looking for helpful information of interest to those of us with greying (or disappearing) hair, I recommend that you visit the CARP website regularly 🙂
