NPT Reports: Aging Matters is a major, multi-year project that’s focusing on the critical issues facing older citizens in Middle Tennessee. Now in its third year, the series has already focused on end-of-life issues, caregiving, aging in place, economics of aging, and health aging. In spring 2016, a new Aging Matters documentary about Alzheimer’s and dementia will be completed. In addition to documentaries, the Aging Matters project includes short videos, televised discussions, extensive community engagement, a resource-rich website and free DVDs for community partners. Watch the documentaries and updates online at the Aging Matters website.

NPT Reports: Aging Matters is made possible by the support of lead sponsor Cigna-HealthSpring; The West End Home Foundation; The HCA Foundation; The Jeanette Travis Foundation. Additional funding is provided by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and Jackson National.
