The 2010 Census showed that every day for the ensuing five years, 8,000 people would turn 65. How are counties in North Carolina preparing for this “Silver Tsunami?” Orange County and its aging services providers have embarked on a unique partnership to develop coordinated community support for older adults and adults with disabilities. The program is having a remarkable impact by helping citizens age successfully and reducing re-hospitalizations for those with complex hospital transitions. What is your county doing to prepare? This workshop, held during the NCACC's 2012 Annual Conference, highlighted a successful public-private partnership of community support designed to teach attendees how to approach their county’s Silver Tsunami with a spirit of discovery.
