Fairfax County’s aging population is increasing. In 2019, 1 in 7 county residents were aged 65 and older, and that number is expected to grow to 1 in 5 residents by 2035!
To meet that demand, Fairfax County is working on the SHAPE the Future of Aging Initiative - it continues to improve Fairfax County’s ability to be a place to age well, and for older adults to live safely, independently and with dignity. Tara Turner, Director of the Fairfax Area Agency on Aging, joins Host Anne Hall to discuss all aspects of the SHAPE initiative and how it helps to encourage older residents to stay in Fairfax and enjoy their older years here. Cathy Cole, Chair of the Fairfax Commission on Aging, shares her experience on the Commission and the important work she and the other volunteers do on behalf of our older residents.
