When you think of AARP, do mobile apps come to mind? AARP is known to provide discounts to is members, provide branded insurance products, and lobby on behalf of Social Security and Medicare. Recently, this same non-profit has released two mobile apps - targeting the Caregiver community.
A caregiver is a term for anyone who helps or provides care to another individual, often a parent or spouse, in handling their daily activities. The caregiver can be paid, such as a nurse, but is more often an unpaid relative. And the person receiving care is often suffering an impairment, and/or dealing with health issues.
These two apps released by AARP (for iOS and Android) provide features designed to help in providing care. For instance, the apps help manage medications, keep a schedule of doctor's appointments and other medical needs, and create and maintain notes you want to share with the doctor. But will this work? Does this actually help someone take care of a loved one? Are these features unique? Are they really the features that a Caregiver needs?
On May 28th, at a special 11am EST/8am Pacific time, we will be joined by Trisha San Diego of AARP, who is the driving force behind the creation and release of these Apps, and we'll ask her these questions.
We'll talk about these apps and ask if there is a sign of things to come from AARP?
Tune in Live at 11am EST, Thursday, May 28th!
And Call In to be a part of the show at 929-477-2187, or reach us by text at 240-731-0756, on Twitter at @techtodayradio, or on Facebook.

Mending the Sisterhood & Ending Women's Bullying by Susan Skog
This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Susan Skog. The original live interview was 11/6/15.
Mending the Sisterhood & Ending Women’s Bullying is an eye-opening, game-changing look at where, why, and how women are bullying, blocking, and shunning other women, from conference rooms to cul-de-sacs. Most importantly, author Susan Skog issues a positive call-to-action for all women to lift one another up, not tear each other down.
Trained as a journalist, Susan Skog is an author, writer, and advocate for developing-world women and girls. Susan's first book, Embracing Our Essence: Spiritual Conversations with Prominent Women, helped spark the women's spirituality movement across the country.
To rally support for girls' education, safe water, maternal health, and poverty relief, Susan's gathered untold stories, from Asia to Africa, that have appeared on NBC, ABC, CNN, Fox, and in The NY Times, LA Times, People, Reader's Digest, AARP, and other top media outlets.

AARP Misleads Americans on Obamacare with Fred Claridge on The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet. Fred Claridge is the CEO of Certified Senior Guidance Association. You've heard the ads on the radio and TV from AARP that state the repeal of Obamacare by Mitt Romney would undermine the seniors and American's everywhere regarding their health. A vote for Romney is a vote for the destruction of Medicare and the healthcare industry. If you believe this ad, you are being misled.
AARP is nothing more than an insurance agency. Obamacare forces Americans to purchase insurance therefore the statement is a scare tactic for special interest groups, groups President Obama said should not exist in Washington. In this case AARP is a special interest group looking to benefit from Obamacare as it will help them sell more health and life insurance.
The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet is broadcast M-F on Blog Talk Radio and syndicated radio stations throughout the country. The Core Businesss Show is sponsored by Apple Capital Group, Inc..
