Committee on Aging

  • Welcome

    The Committee on Aging is concerned with the needs of aging people and their caregivers and the ways New England Yearly Meeting, quarterly meetings, and individual monthly meetings can address those needs. It aims to increase awareness of the aging process, including its challenges and opportunities. Its role includes assisting Friends and the wider community to recognize, cherish and learn from the knowledge, wisdom and experiences of our more aged Friends.
