NPR Talks About Aging in Place

In this four part series, NPR looks at aging, and the variety of different ways currently available to help modern seniors age in place.

We find the first article (Villages Help Neighbors Age at Home) to be an interesting look at how the Village movement is beneficial to seniors of every mobility level; even after dramatic and traumatic injuries.  Find the article here.
