As regular readers may know, I’m a big fan of The New York Times’ New Old Age column, which has been a treasure trove of information on issues related to aging and caregiving. It was founded by Jane Gross in 2008 and continued by Paula Span until the recent decision to discontinue the blog. Paula Span will now write her column twice a month as part of the Health section of The New York Times.
The fact that there was a New Old Age blog was very encouraging to me as I began blogging about my work as a psychologist in long-term care. I’m sorry to see it close in this form and I will follow it to its new incarnation. Thank you, Paula and Jane, for taking on these very important topics.
