Changing Aging in the Granite State

AARP has teamed up with New Hampshire Public Television to develop and broadcast a four-part series called “Changing Aging in the Granite State.”

The segments were inspired by findings from a 2011 AARP survey – Voices of 50+ New Hampshire – that showed:

  • Nearly all New Hampshire adults 50+ believe that protecting themselves against consumer fraud is important
  • More than nine in ten say staying healthy and staying mentally sharp are important to them

Staying in their own homes as they age is important to nearly all adults 50+. And more than four in five support shifting funds used only for nursing homes to home- and community-based services that allow people to stay in their own homes.

Residents worry about economic issues, such as having enough money to retire and many say they will continue working beyond traditional retirement age.

With these statistics in mind, the series addresses four major concerns of the 50-plus population: consumer fraud; staying healthy and mentally sharp, including using medicines wisely; long-term care; and financial security/Social Security.

“We’re pleased to be able to develop programs that will shine a spotlight on the top challenges facing aging Granite Staters and their families,” said AARP New Hampshire State Director Kelly Clark.

Each episode lasts 30 minutes and the series runs late September through December. A list of broadcast dates and times can be found at New Hampshire Public Television

In addition to the four broadcasts, NHPTV will post on its website a variety of educational resources to help residents access even more information about the topics.

Happy viewing.
