Aging

As the population over the age of 65 continues to grow, both in the state and nationally, the Center for Rural Health works to address issues of aging in rural and tribal communities. Our staff:

  • Work to ensure access to health care and support services in communities.
  • Research the availability of services for aging populations.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of innovative services for individuals with dementia.
  • Provide culturally appropriate information and training to assist in the prevention of elder abuse and increase quality of life for elders in tribal communities.

The Center for Rural Health’s Rural Assistance Center lists additional rural aging information and resources.
