Douglas County is experiencing the nation’s most dramatic percentage of population growth in adults aged 60 and older. According to the State Demography Office, by 2030 it is estimated that one in four residents of Douglas County will be age 60 or older – approximately 24% of the County’s population.
The Douglas County Adult Services program strives to enhance the quality of life for aging adults and persons with disabilities throughout the community. The goals of the program are to provide countywide leadership, conduct ongoing needs assessment, and provide a means of exchanging information, networking, promoting the development of resources and services, and serving as an advocate for County residents.
With the rapid increase in our older adult population, many seniors find that they do not have access to the services they need in order to continue to live safely and comfortably in their homes and communities.
