ChangingAging.org is proud to lend its name and support to the premier tonight of New Hampshire Public Television’s CHANGING AGING IN THE GRANITE STATE series funded by AARP New Hampshire and focused on four key issues facing older adults: financial security, health care planning for the long term, consumer and investment fraud, and living well.
Hosted by Allison McNair, the four-part monthly series explores these topics with personal stories, expert perspectives, and engaging discussions. The best part is you don’t have to be in New Hampshire to watch! All shows will be available online at http://www.nhptv.org/aging/
- Financial and Social Security. Do you expect to be financially secure during your retirement? Building a sustainable nest-egg is something many of us either defer or are unable to achieve. Host Allison McNair talks with Faye Doria, a financial planner from Dover, NH, and Michael Rubin, author of the bestselling book Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck, about how to build a retirement nest-egg.
- Health Care Planning for the Long Term. Thousands of people in NH require long-term care and need assistance to perform everyday tasks such as bathing, getting to the store, or going to appointments. Arranging long-term care can involve risks and have serious financial impacts. Also, the system can be tough to navigate. Host Allison McNair addresses these issues with Joanna Theberge, a long-term support counselor from ServiceLink in Manchester, and Rich Crocker, former director of the NH Division of Elderly and Adult Services.
- Smart Money Moves. Get-rich-quick plans and discounts on goods and services draw many unsuspecting individuals into fraudulent schemes. Host Allison McNair discusses these issues with Tracy Culberson from the Consumer Protection Division of the NH Department of Justice and Jeff Spill from the NH State Bureau of Securities.
- Staying Healthy. Being healthy allows us to enjoy retirement, remain mobile and make contributions to the communities where we live. Host Allison McNair talks about staying healthy as we grow older with Terry Johnson, director of HEAL (healthy eating and active living), and Dain LaRoche from the UNH, who studies the importance of strength and mobility in preventing falls.
