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 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.

Ageless Awards

Each year, the Ageless Award is given to individuals who are 75 years or older, demonstrate the importance of living a purposeful life and who continue to make significant contributions to society: as volunteers, philanthropists, mentors and civic leaders. The 2024 Awards will be at 11:30am PT on Wednesday, April 17th.

Housing Projects in Talent and Madras

AGE+ is partnering with local organizations to bring an efficient, affordable housing model for older adults to Talent and Madras. For more information or to inquire about apartment applications, click here.

Why AGE+?

People are living longer, which calls for new intergenerational strategies to value and care for older adults. Community networks are needed to fill in housing, mobility and caregiving gaps, especially for older adults who are isolated, low-income and underserved.

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