‘Caring for the Aging’ kicks off new KET initiative

For Release: 03/25/24 6:00 AM

As the state’s population grows older, more and more Kentuckians will face the challenges of caring for an aging loved one.

In Caring for the Aging: A KET Forum, Dr. Wayne Tuckson, host of the weekly series Kentucky Health, and a panel of experts tackle the subject of caregiving and meeting the needs of our aging population. They will discuss options for providing in-home and out-of-home care, the skill levels required to render care at home, respite services and support for caregivers, as well as a host of other issues related to caregiving.

Caring for the Aging: A KET Forum

The forum is part of a larger KET initiative called The Next Chapter, which will focus on aging issues and offer a curated collection of programs and resources related to the challenges and rewards of navigating one’s golden years. Over the next year, look for future KET Forums covering additional topics related to aging, such as access to healthcare, finances, the aging brain, Medicare and more as well as Kentucky Health, Kentucky Edition and other KET productions dedicated to this topic.
