Jewish Family Services Reaches Out to Older Folks

Loneliness can be one of the most troublesome aspects of aging. Gina Botshtein of Jewish Family Services says agency staff carefully screen those they serve to identify how well they're connecting with family and friends.

Botshtein says there are many heartwarming stories among Milwaukee's aging population, and some not so positive. She appeared during a live broadcast of Morning Edition from the Pabst Theatre, part of WUWM's Project Milwaukee: Wise Today, Well Tomorrow series.
