Prepare your community for the Aging Population


The United States’ population is aging, from state to state and in every neighborhood.  The U.S. Census projects that 1 in 4 Americans will be advanced in age by the year 2040.  It has become increasingly essential for communities to plan for the growing older adult population now. National Research Center’s Community Assessment Survey for Older Adults asks advanced aged citizens themselves about their circumstances and needs.  CASOA assesses multiple community dimensions as they relate to older adults, and has been named “The best fit for measuring age friendliness of a community” by the City of London, Ontario.
