Older people across the country are skipping doctor’s appointments, splitting pills and losing their houses. Often the money coming in simply isn’t enough to cover their basic necessities.

 

Journalist Barry Yeoman talks with Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert about three women he met while researching his report on older Americans facing poverty, which will appear in the March/April issue of AARP The Magazine.   

 

Then … Why did $100 million in federal funding for meals for seniors only pay for 14 million meals?

 

That’s a question Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert has for Kathy Greenlee, President Obama’s assistant secretary for aging.

 

In this wide-ranging conversation, Greenlee answers that question, explains why seniors should consider getting the H1N1 vaccine and seasonal flu vaccine and talks about a new program aimed at helping seniors fight chronic disease.
