Aging is something we have in common, no matter what age we are right now. Being part of a community, feeling safe, maintaining health and mobility – these are expectations that most of us have as we age. The Senior Services Coalition is working together to shape public policy for today, and for a future in which every fifth person you meet will be over 65.
