Advocating for the Elderly

May 26, 2016


The number of older adults in the United States is projected to double by the year 2060. Many elders will need services and supports to live with the greatest dignity, independence and quality of life possible. For almost 40 years, CARIE has been an advocate and a source of information and guidance for older adults and their caregivers, helping them navigate the complex health and aging systems.
