We advocate for, empower and guide older adults and their loved ones to live with independence and well-being.
A world that grows older better, together.
Everything we do is guided by compassion, collaboration, reliability, integrity and respect.
Supporting Age-friendly Communities
The Council on Aging advocates for age-friendly cities— places where infrastructure, policies, and practices are developed to make the community livable, accessible, and responsive to the needs of people of all ages, especially older adults. By 2030, people 65+ will comprise almost 20 percent of the nation’s population — and in many communities, that percentage is already a reality.
