Where can a leader or senior adult go for information on retirement planning, health and wellness, and surviving an adult child’s return home? National Public Radio’s Next Avenue is a one-stop shop for information and tools aimed at senior adults and those who care for them. The site is organized into six categories including work and purpose, living and learning, and money and security, and each one is full of options for exploring specific aspects of the topic. The free, downloadable content comes in multiple formats from articles and blogs to slide shows and videos. The large selection of topical videos can be used as conversation starters for small groups or leadership teams. While Next Avenue is a secular site its practical tools and information make it a great resource for congregations, individual senior adults, their families and caregivers.
