Aging in the Heart of Rural Wisconsin – June CARE Connections

Rural communities are aging more rapidly than are other areas, in Wisconsin and across the country.

Read how a School of Nursing team has been working with three rural community coalitions to support aging-in-place in the June issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“We have patrons who have been using our library probably 70 or 80 years,” says Stangel. “We’re seeing their changing needs.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a toolkit to help communities support aging-in-place, a profile of CARE Affiliate Kristen Pickett, PhD, and news and events related to older adult health and well-being.
