Annual Public Hearing & Wellness Forum

The Ontario County Office for the Aging Would Like Your Opinion

There are now 24,000 people age 60 or older living in Ontario County, up from 17,000 just a decade ago. This age group represents 22% of the total county population. From 2000 to 2010 the population age 60 to 84 increased by 37% and those 85 and older increased by 52%.  This growth in population highlights the growing need for sufficient community- based long term care services.

Now more than ever it is important that we hear from the residents of Ontario County on the services they most need.

Please attend one of our Public Hearings give us your opinion. Following the public hearing please stay for the Wellness Forum.
