Each issue features a unique mix of interviews, hard news, columns, photos, and puzzles targeted to older Kansans and caregivers. Regular columns include FYI, Caregiver Corner, Does Medicare Pay for That?, Legal Matters, Savvy Senior Technology, and Scam Scan.

       Keynotes is funded by readers’ voluntary contributions, advertising support and a grant from Title III-B of the Older Americans Act.
