Commission on Aging
Call for Nominations: 1st Annual Silver Citizen Award
Clark County recognizes that older adults are valuable contributors to the vitality of this community. To encourage and support older adults for their contributions to their communities, the Clark County Commission on Aging has established a program to recognize older adults.
Clark County, as everywhere in the country, is anticipating a huge surge in the number of residents 60 or better. Today, one in six residents is 60 or older, and the number will increase to one in four by 2030.
With a silver tidal wave coming our way, the then-Board of County Commissioners appointed a nine-member Commission on Aging in June 2012. The commission is charged with implementing the 91 strategies of the Aging Readiness Plan to improve the community’s capacity to support its growing older population and ultimately benefit all ages.
The commission is focusing this year on Healthy Communities. Features of a community either contribute to or decrease one's ability to live independently, safely and comfortably. The commission will hear from speakers and community members throughout the year to learn about how we can improve the built environment to provide opportunities for better physical and mental health for all ages.
