Older Americans are on the rise. The fun they are having is, too!
As baby boomers continue to age, our population is getting older. According to the U.S Census Bureau’s projections, about one of every five people will be 65 or older by 2030.
This rapid growth of our senior population will have an enormous impact on how we live and what services we need as a nation. For example, housing for older adults should be accessible, affordable, and safe; social services like transportation and home care should also be readily available for those who need it most.

80 is the new 60
Seniors are increasingly taking part in adventurous activities. Gone are the days of seniors relegated to sitting on porches swinging life away. Instead, they’re out rock climbing, skydiving, and surfing. A growing movement of older adults refuse to let age define them or their lifestyle.
All over the country, initiatives are springing up to support seniors in staying active as they get older. Local groups, fitness clubs, and retirement communities are all getting in on the action. Fitness groups like Mutually Well, and Silver&Fit have joined pioneer programs like Silver Sneakers.
These programs are great because they provide older adults with the resources to plan and participate in activities that will keep them physically fit and mentally engaged.
80 is the new 60 doesn’t mean 80-year olds don’t need help getting around or maintaining their homes anymore. It just means we all have more active and vibrant seniors living in our communities and that we should be supporting them while they’re out there doing what they love.
National Legal Center helps seniors thrive by solving debt. When debt isn’t in the way, the adventure continues on!
