About

Shaping the Future of Aging in Virginia: Informed. Inclusive. Innovative.

Virginia's population is becoming older and more diverse. Today there are nearly 1.5 million adults in the Commonwealth aged 60 and over, and this population will expand to more than 2 million by 2030 when the baby boom generation will be between 66 and 84 years old. Virginia's aging population is living longer due to the advances in health care; older Virginians with chronic conditions will need assistance longer while contributing as valuable resources, bringing knowledge to the work force and wisdom to communities.

 

As Virginia shapes its future as one of the best states to live in and do business, it also has leaders striving to create a leadership culture for caregivers and individuals aging in their communities. Being a great place to live encompasses valuing seniors.

 

This conference will explore the spectrum of aging services in Virginia, providing a forum for discussion about what is currently happening, how we responded over the past two years, and what we see on the horizon. Join all who see themselves as aging advocates for a two-day conference in Richmond that will yield recommendations to policy makers and create a vision for the future of aging in Virginia

 

"Shaping the Future of Aging in Virginia: Informed. Inclusive. Innovative." will focus on engaging presenters and attendees from across the Commonwealth and beyond in main focus areas:

  • Informed Virginia - What are organizations currently doing to successfully support aging Virginians and their networks. How do those foundations set the pace for what comes next?

 

  • Inclusive Virginia - What does inclusion across the aging spectrum mean in Virginia? How do we ensure ageism is defied?

 

  • Innovative Virginia - Over the past two years, organizations, public and private, have had to be creative and innovative to support this growing older population. What are the lessons we have learned that we are taking forward? What successes can be replicated as we strengthen the supports needed to continue building a strong aging network in Virginia?
