Aging Together in New York

Aging presents a unique stage of life - one that has not been adequately explored.  As life expectancy grows, our society has not kept up with the potential of an added generation of experience - potentially decades beyond age sixty-five. Working in collaboration with the New York State Office for the Aging, Buffalo Toronto Public Media is proud to collaborate with public media stations across New York state on a multi-platform project addressing social isolation among older adults through news coverage, shared personal stories, modeling healthy relationships, building community, and providing resources for seniors that reduce isolation and build resiliency. Public broadcasters across the state will reach older adults on broadcast television and radio, online, and at in-person events with new documentaries, short films, and other engaging content.
