The nature of aging is changing. As a culture, we are living longer, and dying more slowly than ever before. On the next On Being, Krista Tippett draws wisdom from journalist Jane Gross. She created the New York Times "New Old Age" blog after she accompanied her mother through her final years. Her hard-won wisdom on experiencing the new old age of our parents - and ourselves - is eloquent and useful. She shares these lessons for caregiving in her new memoir, A Bittersweet Season: Caring for our Aging Parents-and Ourselves. [Broadcast Date: July 26, 2012]
