Commission on Aging
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.
2018 Transportation Focus
The Clark County Commission on Aging is focusing this year on transportation, especially for people 60 and older. To successfully age in place, people need to be able to access the supports, services, and amenities that they will require as they age, such as making trips to the grocery store, the doctor’s office, or a friend’s home. Once you can no longer drive, alternative mobility choices will be necessary to maintain independence.
The purpose is to provide education, awareness and advocacy of transportation needs and services for people 60 and older, especially those that wish to age in place. To stay up to date on their work this year, check out the 2018 Transportation focus page.
