Aging & Healthcare in Rural America: Overlooked Needs, Quiet Strength

posted 09.28.2017

By Cindy Padilla 

Rural America defies easy definition. It is large and diverse, geographically, ethnically and culturally. In 2010, rural America was home to approximately 20 percent of the U.S. popu­lation, yet about 95 percent of U.S territory is still officially designated as rural. Rural America is generally poorer than its urban neighbors, plays an important role in national issues like agriculture and energy, is frequently ignored politically and is aging—even more quickly than the rest of the country.

Don’t Let Marketers Tell You How to Age in Place

posted 09.07.2017

By Stacy Canan

We often hear that older Americans want to “age in place.” Aging in place means living at home in the community, rather than in an institutional setting, like a nursing facility. This is the choice most people want to make even if they need services and supports to do so.
