The rapid change in our older adult population will change the demographics and make-up of Miami-Dade County in the coming years. How well we prepare our communities for this aging phenomenon will determine the quality of life for the residents of our community as it ages. It is imperative that Miami-Dade takes significant steps today towards addressing this challenge and implementing strategies to make our community more age-friendly for older adults.
The Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Summit took place on May 16, 2019 and was an an engaging discussion with local movers-and-shakers aimed at making Greater Miami better – more convenient, more integrated, more accessible, and more enjoyable for older adults and for our citizens of all ages. Strategies aimed at implementation and change from national and community leaders with a focus on actionable steps, particularly focused on our health system, housing, and planning were provided.
