The Living and Aging Well in Lone Tree Ad Hoc Committee envisions our city as a senior-friendly community where residents have the opportunity to age with choice, independence and dignity.
We are committed to creating opportunities for residents to remain independent and active by:
- Identifying and advocating for issues and concerns
- Linking with existing social, health, financial and support agencies
- Providing avenues for social interaction
- Supporting educational opportunities
The Living and Aging Well in Lone Tree Ad Hoc Committee has been meeting since January 2012 to explore issues related to the area's aging population.
For several years, Douglas County has been one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. Although the share of the population 65 years or older in the County is just 7 percent, that age group grew by 177 percent between 2000 and 2010.
Douglas County ranks second in the nation in the growth rate of its older population. That has many of us wondering what it means for services, transportation, health care, safety, social well-being and continued quality of life. Dubbed the Living and Aging Well in Lone Tree Ad Hoc Committee, this local grass-roots effort has been supported by City staff. The first major program developed by this group is a lunch-time speaker series held at the Lone Tree Golf Club.
