Older Adults

Older Adults

​​​​​​By 2030, the number of Americans 60 years of age and over will have more than doubled - which will mean that one in every five Americans will be in this group.  As more people are becoming "older adults," they bring different expectations, experiences, and preferences to aging than their parents or grandparents did. 

Oakland County is pleased to offer this website as a guide for older adults who are looking for information about "aging well."  Many resources are available for housing, health, medical, legal issues, and local services as well as other valuable information.
