Ageless Maine

Ageless Maine is the magazine for people over 50 who look at their life as one filled with adventure, joy, and discovery. This is the magazine for people who have learned from their experiences and fearlessly and energetically look forward to the years that lie ahead—and to getting the most out of every moment. Ageless will cover topics that matter—from responsible investment strategies, to adjusting to being an empty nester, to wellness tips that will help you live life to its fullest. And each month we’ll profile your contemporaries who are still making a difference. You are active, you are engaged, and you are ageless.
