Type: Webinar

One of the sad realities of today's economy is that 1 in 3 older Americans struggles every day just to pay for food, medicine, and a place to live. And millions of boomers and middle-income seniors are also living on the edge—just one bad break away from poverty.

What should aging service providers know about the economic challenges seniors face? And how can they help?

Learn these answers and more from Allison Mooney, manager of One Away, a collaborative national video advocacy campaign that gives voice to vulnerable older adults who are struggling to make ends meet. The campaign captures real stories of seniors on video—and calls for legislative and policy changes to make it easier for them to get the services and support they need to live with independence and dignity.

This webinar is part of NCOA's Aging Briefing Series sponsored with IlluminAge.

Discover:

  • The financial challenges facing millions of older Americans today.
  • How aging services professionals and their organizations can respond to the critical needs of struggling older adults.
  • How we can make elder economic security a priority through reauthorization of the Older Americans Act.
