About Us

Way 2 Age is an interactive online community focused on healthy, creative aging. Our mission is to provide a venue for exploring the rewards and challenges of the aging process.

We invite you to become a member and to share your stories, information, jokes, hobbies, wisdom, research, poems, pictures, and videos. As you do, and as you interact with others from around the world who are doing the same, you should discover fresh insights and new perspectives that will enrich and enlarge your experience.

We provide a structure that will allow that process to happen. Besides offering blogs and commenting features that enable you to contribute to the site, we also provide some core ideas, which you are free to comment on, and regular links to and news from other sites that we believe may be of interest.

And, as with any Web site, this one is a work in progress---always evolving and growing. Come back often to see what we're up to.
