PORTLAND, Maine — All this month we're taking some time on Monday mornings to examine issues related to aging.

This week Irwin Gratz interviews Patricia Oh, coordinator of older adult services in Bowdoinham. She wrote an essay in the latest Maine Policy Review about what it takes to be an age-friendly community.

Oh says making your city or town more friendly toward its older citizens can make things better for everyone.
