AGING On Being

Jane Gross created The New Old Age blog at The New York Times after she accompanied her mother through unfamiliar territory in life: the way we live longer now, and, conversely, die more slowly. She tells us that we not only have to care for our parents — but for ourselves.

Krista Tippet, NPR, interviews Gross and listens to how different the experience of aging is from child to adult to caregiver to aged parent. She provides good insight and good tips for personal growth and care giving.
