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.

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