Older people are a rapidly growing proportion of the world’s population. The US has seen an increase of 45 percent in its senior population since 2000 while elderly citizens account for almost 30% of the population of Japan. People are living longer, but are we living better? How do we track conditions at the community level to ensure that our elderly members are not isolated, in poor health, and unable to access basic services or meet their basic needs. This webinar will identify issues specific to an aging population and will propose indicators that ensure that seniors are counted and their particular needs addressed, along with resources on how to track those indicators.
