Growing old. If we’re lucky, it’s something all of us will face.
But how will we navigate the rest of our lives? What will we do with our gift of longevity? And will we have the support and skills we need to age with health, economic security, and independence?
These are defining questions for our nation as the Baby Boom generation marches toward retirement. And NCOA is at the forefront of answering them.
Trusted partner and advocate
NCOA is a trusted partner for people aged 60+ to meet the challenges of aging—and a powerful advocate for those who are struggling. Founded in 1950, we are experienced leaders in developing practical, creative solutions to help older adults age well.
Aging today is ripe with challenges and opportunities—to stay healthy in the face of chronic conditions, and to stay economically secure and independent despite limited incomes and skyrocketing health care costs.
NCOA offers innovative solutions—in hundreds of communities and online. We partner with government, foundations, corporations, and local organizations to identify unmet needs among seniors, develop new models to address them, and bring what works to scale nationwide. At the same time, our advocacy makes public policies work better for older adults, especially those who are struggling.
By 2020, our goal is to improve the health and economic security of 10 million older adults. We invite you to join us.
