May is Older Americans Month in the United States. June is Elder Abuse Awareness Month nationally. Karla Fales, CEO of the Region 3B Area Agency on Aging, called attention to some of the challenges facing older Americans in Calhoun and Barry counties where the organization operates.

Fales tells WBCK in many instances, older Americans and those who care for them are not aware of the resources available to them.

She also paints a picture of the landscape for older Americans in the coming few years. Hear her comments by clicking the player below.
