Age in Action is a 20-page quarterly newsletter published jointly by the Virginia Center on Aging, the Virginia Geriatric Education Center, and the Virginia Department for the Aging. Its target audience is composed of professionals in the field of aging, gerontologists, geriatricians, health professionals and administrators, adult home and community professionals, and anyone else interested in activities in geriatrics and gerontology education and research in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The most important feature of the newsletter is the case study which appears in each issue. These case studies are developed based on current issues and concerns affecting older adults.
Male Caregivers: Breaking through the Male Self-Sufficiency Barrier to Help Those in Need is a case study that describes the specific issues male caregivers face and the benefits of programs designed to help them. Several Virginia Area Agencies on Aging (AAA's) have used funding to develop such programs and are illustrated in the case study.
