Aging with Options

The Volunteers of America Oregon and the LifeWorks NW and Urban League of Portland produced a report, “It Takes a Village to Live a Life – A  Community Assessment on Aging,” to showcase the results from a two-year needs assessment of older adults and their caregivers.  The report was put together in order to start a dialogue about how older adults in the Portland area can remain active members of a community and really participate in civic engagement.  The highlights of the report will be presented to community leaders on August 27 and hopes to raise the awareness of foundations, government entities, nonprofit organizations and others to educate their audiences on the importance of community involvement among older adults.
