Why I believe The Active Age is important

By Tim Marlar | October 2, 2023

Print newspapers were long a staple in most homes, providing a source of news, information and entertainment. In recent years, however, the popularity of print newspapers has declined as more and more people have turned to digital news sources.
Despite this decline, print newspapers such as The Active Age still play an important role. For some seniors, print newspapers are a more accessible and easier-to-read format than digital news. Other seniors prefer reading online, which is why The Active Age now has a free digital version available.
The Active Age tries to provide a sense of community and connection by telling readers what’s going on in their town or city. In addition, it carries information about health care, Social Security and other issues that affect them. It also provides a forum for readers to share their own experiences and stories.
There are a number of ways you can help keep The Active Age going, including:
● Donating to The Active Age
● Sending your comments and suggestions for articles to the editor
● Promoting The Active Age to your friends and neighbors
The Active Age can make a real difference in the lives of older adults. If you are a senior, or if you know someone who is, I encourage you to support The Active Age. I believe you will be glad you did.
