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.
2017 Supportive Services Focus
The Clark County Commission on Aging is focusing this year on supportive services, especially for people 50 and older. The purpose is to educate and raise awareness about supportive services that exist, or may need to exist, to help Clark County’s older citizens age in their own home and familiar neighborhood for as long as they can. To stay up to date on their work this year, check out the 2017 Supportive Services Focus page.
2016 Commission on Aging Annual Report
The commission and Board of County Councilors are pleased to publish the fourth annual report for review by the community. The commission saw the beginning and implementation of several projects in this past year.
As a community ambassador, the Commission on Aging provides leadership, advocacy and community awareness, and develops partnerships to initiate positive change toward an all-age-friendly, livable community.
