A New Vision for Aging

AGE+ was created to champion a new vision for successful and equitable aging for all Oregonians by empowering communities, linking generations and stimulating innovation to make longer life an opportunity, not a burden, especially for isolated and underserved older adults in rural areas.

Empowering Communities

AGE+ empowers communities through stimulating partnerships, training caregivers and developing innovative programs that address the real and growing challenges facing aging in America.

Our Initiatives

Oregon has a tradition of leadership in helping older adults age in place, achieving greater equity in access to health care and supporting nonprofits that make a difference.

Why AGE+?

People are living longer, which calls for new intergenerational strategies to value and care for older adults. Medicare and Medicaid are critical sources of support, but community networks are needed to fill in housing, mobility and caregiving gaps, especially for older adults who are isolated, poor and underserved.

AGE+ empowers communities through stimulating partnerships, training caregivers and sponsoring innovative programs that address the real and growing challenges facing aging in America.
