“Honestly Aging’s” first season launched with a theme of solo aging and includes many different topics. It is aimed to appeal to people who are solo agers or are curious about what it may mean to be a solo ager.

It features stories and informatio­n for and about Friends Life Care members and friends and can be enjoyed by any older adult or podcast fan.

The first episode introduced the theme of solo aging in a poignant and multi-faceted way. Future episodes cover topics such as advanced planning, grief and loss, solo travel and forever home accessibil­ity.

The podcast has generated a great deal of interest among interviewe­es, and the first season will feature a new podcast every two weeks. Podcasts through year-end have been recorded and are in the final stages of production.

“It’s an absolute joy crafting and producing this podcast,” said Cheryl Proska, host of “Honestly Aging.” “I have enjoyed meeting with so many interestin­g people, hearing their fascinatin­g stories, and learning from profession­als in the field. And I just know that you will enjoy the ‘Honestly Aging’ podcast, too.”

Friends Life Care is a Quaker-value-based nonprofit organizati­on that has been helping older adults thrive at home as they age for over 30 years. The vast majority of older adults want to age in place rather than move to communal living or a facility. Friends Life Care offers a variety of continuing care at home (CCAH) plans to people in Pennsylvan­ia and Delaware with a focus on prevention, holistic wellness and coordinati­on of in-home care when it may be needed. People ages 40 to 85 become members to help protect their independen­ce, guard their financial security and gain peace of mind.
