Kaye speaks to WalletHub about the best states to retire

Lenard Kaye, director of the University of Maine Center on Aging and professor at the University of Maine School of Social Work, was featured as an expert for a WalletHub ranking of the best states to retire based on three key dimensions: affordability, quality of life and health care. “Age-friendly states and communities have easy access to quality health, social, and other public services, good systems of transportation, are walkable and safe, offer opportunities for employment, volunteering, and civic engagement, have effective systems for information sharing and communicating with its citizens, and encourage older adults having a voice and being respected in the communities in which they live,” Kaye said.
