Inside the November-December Aging Today

The November–December 2018 In Focus section of Aging Today looks outward, toward global solutions for the world’s longer-lived societies. Michael Hodin suggests a cultural shift to embrace a new, global social contract; Donna Butts, Ernst Gonzales and Alex Yoss detail international co-housing options that can benefit all generations; and other contributing authors to this issue of Aging Today address the global epidemic of loneliness; elder abuse abroad; the status of worldwide advocacy for caregivers; and a unique collaboration between the University of Southern California and Mexico to respond to issues of aging on both sides of the border.

Also in this issue, contributor Robynn Cox discusses the concept of compassionate release for incarcerated elders; the Engaged Age column talks to one member of Grannies Respond, a grassroots organization protesting the current Administration’s draconian immigration policies; Nancy Gordon, ASA’s 2018 FORSA Award winner, offers spiritual guidance for aging well; and we profile the 2018 Gloria Cavanaugh Award winner, NAPCA, which gives technical assistance and training to 50 subpopulations of older Asian American and Pacific Islanders.
