About the Program

There's never been a better time to be an older American. We are living longer and healthier lives than previous generations. But a longer life sometimes brings challenges that require older adults and their families to seek resources and solutions so as to lead more productive lives and cope with unforeseen circumstances.

AGING MATTERS is a weekly radio program featuring individuals with expertise about a broad array of aging-related topics. The show is broadcast both on Arlington Independent Media (AIM) radio WERA-LP 96.7 FM and on podcasts. Produced in an interview format, guests educate and inform listeners about timely topics that impact the lives of older adults and their families. The program focus is to help ensure older adults live better and longer.




AGING MATTERS is also a TV Show produced at AIM and broadcast twice weekly on Arlington, Virginia cable channels and streaming live on www.arlingtonmedia.org. The show offers interviews with aging experts and includes demonstrations of how aging related subjects benefit the lives of older adults and their families. Recent programs feature “Stories of Life,” personal accounts of older adults, which capture notable events that made a difference to them and to their community.
