Oregonians are increasingly aware of issues related to aging. News stories regularly feature prescription drugs, Alzheimer's disease, and medical advances for seniors. But in addition to medicine and health, interest has shifted to promoting active and independent lifestyles. With the Baby Boomer generation reaching senior citizen status, this trend toward expanding possibilities is likely to continue. As this guide demonstrates, senior citizens in Oregon have access to an array of programs and services related to health, independent living, care facilities, employment, recreation and more.
