In the past decade, the population growth of people 65 and over has far exceeded the growth rate for the population as a whole. As a region, Greater New Haven mirrors the national trend. Over the next decade, older adults (ages 65 and over) are projected to increase significantly in size. From 2014 to 2025, the older adult population will grow by 43 percent.
Nearly 90 percent of these seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age.
Caring for a family member or friend can be challenging. PRIDE strives to enhance seniors’ ability to live safely and independently in their own homes, while decreasing their reliance on the 9-1-1 system and hospital emergency departments.
