Marin Community Foundation – Successful Aging

Marin Community Foundation – Successful Aging

The growth rate of the older population in Marin is the fastest in the state. By 2010, one in four adults in the County will be over 65. The largest subset of this population growth is in the over-85 age group. The service system and other relevant resources will be pushed to new limits. As older adults age, they face increasing difficulty in remaining in their own homes or other living situations without increases in home health and other supportive services.
