Resource Summary: The proportion of the world’s population over 60 years of age is projected to increase nearly double from 12% to 22% between 2015 and 2050 according to the World Health Organization (WHO). With the dramatic increase of this population, the need for programs and initiatives that address their healthy aging also increases. Ensuring that older adults have access to health care and the ability to “age in place” is a national priority both from a quality of life perspective and a cost savings perspective.
