Founded in 2012 with a hope of restoring reverence, care, compassion and concern for the elderly The Senior Zone was formed. Now in its 12th year, The Senior Zone has become a forum of connection and inspiring possibilities for older adults seeking tips and directions to senior programs, services, tools, resources, events, advice and cultural tidbits.  The Senior Zone serves as an invaluable and versatile resource each Monday morning at 10:00am EST on WYCB, 1340AM.

The Senior Zone  is devoted to older adults, their caregivers and the families who support and encourage them. The Senior Zone provides unbiased information via a variety of professional organizations and subject matter experts throughout the U.S & beyond.
