A world that grows older better, together.

NONDISCRIMINATION POLICY

We do not discriminate based on race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status.


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.
