Stay healthy, live longer

August 2, 2019

As Americans live longer, growth in the number of older adults is unprecedented. In 2014, 14.5% (46.3 million) of the US population was aged 65 or older and is projected to reach 23.5% (98 million) by 2060.

Aging adults experience higher risk of chronic disease. In 2012, 60% of older adults managed 2 or more chronic conditions.

Common chronic conditions include:

 Heart Disease
 Chronic bronchitis or emphysema
 Diabetes mellitus
 Alzheimer's disease
