AZ: The State of Aging in the Valley Series on KJZZ

Posted on 10/24/17 by Alex

Senior Woman Talking With Black Doctor In Hospice

AARP Arizona is proud to sponsor KJZZ State of Aging in the Valley series.  We applaud the efforts KJZZ is doing to provide its listeners and Arizona's community in general more resources and tools for more than 804,000 Arizona's caregivers.

Arizona has long been a destination for older Americans with its pristine retirement communities. But aging in America isn’t what it used to be. It’s expensive and sometimes isolating. This series aims to explore the reality of an aging society. The aging issue isn’t going away — so let's talk about it.

Here are the links to KJZZ aging episodes.  We hope you enjoy it.
