Aging into the Future: Pierce County 2020-2030
March 23 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Over the next 10 years, Pierce County will look substantially different than it does today – especially for older adults and individuals with disabilities. By the year 2030, a large percentage of county residents will be over the age of 60 and many of them will also be living with physical, cognitive, developmental and intellectual disabilities.
To prepare for this transformative time, Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources is hosting “Aging into the Future: Pierce County 2020-2030.” This innovative forum is more than a conference on aging. It is a community conversation about what to look for in the coming decade and how we can start planning now to make the best use of emerging services, technologies and resources.
The conference will feature innovative, fast-paced PechaKucha presentations on crucial topics such as transportation, housing, long-term health, financial security, threats to independence and more. This specialized format allows presenters to use only 20 slides, for 20 seconds each, to illustrate their vision. Each presentation will be followed by a live survey of audience members using a real-time electronic voting system. Participants will also be able to respond with written feedback, suggestions and recommendations.
