May is Older Americans Month and, in honor of that special theme, we wrote about the fast-growing Village Movement that is helping older adults remain in their homes as they age.

Also included this month is an exclusive interview with Mass. Executive Office of Elder Affairs Secretary Elizabeth Chen about EOEA’s work throughout the state and a look ahead at upcoming Memorial Day events.
