The Age & Dementia Cape Ann (ADFCA) Action Plan represents a broad range of goals and potential strategies.
REGIONAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Prepared by the Center for Social & Demographic Research on Aging Gerontology Institute, University of Massachusetts Boston
Why Age & Dementia Friendly Cape Ann?
According to the Massachusetts Health 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.
