Why Age & Dementia Friendly Cape Ann?
According to the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative, over 32% of Cape Ann residents are age 60 or older. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2030, 40% of residents of Cape Ann will be age 60+ and in Rockport, almost half. The time for planning how the communities of Cape Ann can make adjustments in order to best accommodate these demographic shifts is now. This will be a permanent demographic change and impacts residents both today and in the future.
