Communities Magazine: Elders 
2nd-Dec-2010 02:12 pm

The latest issue of Communities  magazine is now in print.  Do you have elders in your household? 


Our new Communities issue on Elders is on its way to subscribers and in stores now. You can subscribe now or order a sample copy and we'll ship you a copy today!

Communities' Winter issue focuses on Elders. Through personal stories, we learn how community in its various forms can improve the lives of elders, how elders can contribute to their communities, and the unique challenges and rewards of elderhood. Our authors share well-earned elder wisdom, celebrate the lives of several recently-passed elders, explore different options for growing
older in community, and touch on a wide range of other topics, from urban kibbutzim to effective meeting skills. We hope you enjoy the issue!


A selection of articles from our new issue are posted at
