NY Times Blog on Aging

I just found a great new blog on aging in the online New York Times. It's called "new old age".

"About The New Old Age

Thanks to the marvels of medical science, our parents are living longer than ever before. Adults over age 80 are the fastest growing segment of the population, and most will spend years dependent on others for the most basic needs. That burden falls to their baby boomer children, 77 million strong, who are flummoxed by the technicalities of eldercare, turned upside down by the changed architecture of their families, struggling to balance work and caregiving, and depleting their own retirement savings in the process. In The New Old Age, we explore this unprecedented intergenerational challenge.

While founding blogger Jane Gross is on leave, at work on a book, we'll be posting contributions from a variety of writers. You can reach the editors at newoldage@nytimes.com."

Check it out.
