The Board of Directors hosted their Annual Meeting July 24th. Thanks to all who attended to learn about Center operations.
The 2017-18 Annual Report is now available. You can get a copy at the center and on our website.
At the meeting, a few stats on NC and Rowan County’s Older adults were shared:
NC ranks 9th nationally, both in total population and in the # of adults age 65 and older
In 7 years, 1 in 5 North Carolinians will be age 65 and older (year 2025)
In the next 20 years in Rowan County, people age 65 and older will increase 92% while state growth will increase 76%
Today, Rowan County’s older adults, age 65 and older:
-10.5% are living below 100% of poverty level
-27% are living between 100-200% of poverty level
-26% are living alone

-Approx. 800 adults, age 60+, are responsible for children under age 18
-Adults age 65 and older living with Alzheimer’s Disease in NC is expected to increase 31% in the next 7 yrs.
Something to think about as we work together to respond to the growing needs of Older Adults in our County.
