"
BECAUSE OF MORE-EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS, PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING WITH H-I-V AND AIDS ARE ENJOYING LONGER, HEALTHIER LIVES; MORE AND MORE ARE EXPERIENCING LIFE AFTER AGE-50.  IN FACT, BY 20-17, HALF OF THE PEOPLE IN THE U-S WHO ARE LIVING WITH AIDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE 50 OR OLDER.  SHORT- OR LONG-TERM CARE CAN HAVE A HUGE IMPACT ON THE QUALITY-OF-LIFE FOR PEOPLE [WHO ARE] LIVING WITH MANY DISEASES--SUCH AS H-I-V AND AIDS.  SO, A-A-R-P HAS A HOST OF ONLINE TIPS AND TOOLS FOR CAREGIVERS, AT 'A-A-R-P'-DOT-ORG; JUST SEARCH FOR 'CAREGIVING RESOURCES'."
