04 Jan In My Opinion: New care models for aging population
“(Adirondack) Park residents average just under 43 years of age, older than any state for median age. By 2020, only the west coast of Florida will exceed the Adirondacks as the oldest region in America.” — Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Project, 2009
Our communities are experiencing a growing percentage of older residents, who are becoming increasingly savvy when it comes to health-care decisions.
As we all age, we will seek a mix of traditional and new services to help support the lifestyle we choose.
