Wish of a Lifetime, from AARP

Help Love Grow

Creating connections today and every day

Changing the story of aging

We’re on a mission to help older Americans at risk for isolation strengthen social connections—and live more vibrant, purposeful lives.

Our volunteers help grant life-changing wishes, make meaningful connections within communities, and share inspiring stories that celebrate older adults for their knowledge and contributions.

Celebrating older adults

We grant wishes to celebrate older adults for their wisdom, contributions, and sacrifices.

Sharing stories that inspire

A wish fulfilled can change a life, but a story can change the world.

With each wish experience shared, we inspire people of all ages to live their best life. Like Helen, who overcame stage fright to sing a solo at age 82.

Wish of a Lifetime from AARP has granted over 2,500 life-changing wishes.
