AARP The Magazine is a lifestyle magazine geared toward people aged 50 and above. Articles featured in AARP The Magazine cover a wide variety of topics, such as health, work, retirement, finance and family, as well as travel and politics.
Though the range of topics covered in AARP The Magazine is similar to those of other lifestyle magazines, most of its articles are targeted towards people older than 50. Articles on health, for example, typically answer questions about Medicare, rising prescription drug costs or other issues of concern to an aging community.
AARP The Magazine also covers topics typically neglected by other lifestyle magazines. Examples include articles on how to handle relationships with adult children, how to manage romantic relationships in retirement communities and how to confront elder abuse. Profiles of prominent people over the age of 50 are also popular in AARP The Magazine. These profiles range from former presidents to actors and artists who have recently passed away.
In addition to articles geared toward the over-50 population, AARP The Magazine covers subjects found in traditional lifestyle magazines, such as celebrity gossip, travel tips and movie and television reviews. This is the largest circulation magazine in the United States.
