Aging is something we all have in common

Aging in place, living with dignity, being part of a community, feeling safe, maintaining health and mobility, being able to aspire and achieve, and being able to exercise choice – these are expectations that all of us have as we age. Community-based supportive services are a necessary part of the equation in helping us meet the challenges of aging and live successfully in our communities. This is true now, and it will certainly be true in the future when every fifth person you meet will be over 65.
