Growing older is a personal journey for each of us. But as they say, no man is an island. As you’re growing older, so too are those around you. We are rapidly approaching the point where 1/3 of our population will be over the age of 65. This will have a profound impact on our society, and could be cause for celebration, or crisis, depending upon how we plan for and embrace this new phenomenon. But first we have to acknowledge and discuss this demographic explosion. Enter The Aging America Project, a multi-media, collaborative project designed to stimulate a national dialogue about the planning and programs we’ll need around the country to do this right. One important way to get the dialogue going is the airing of a one-hour documentary in late June on public television stations across the country. It’s called Coming of Age in Aging America, and you can watch the trailer Here. And you can listen to a podcast with the film’s documentary film maker, Christine Herbes-Sommers, Here.
