BE VITAL

San Diego County’s population of people over age 65 is expected to nearly double to more than 720,000 in the next 15 years. And increasingly, older adults say that they want to age in place--Eighty-seven percent wish to remain living independently in their homes and communities. 

THERE IS HELP

San Diego County’s Aging & Independence Services’ goal is to support older adults to maintain good health, live safely, and thrive.  They are we are committing to a process of in-depth  planning and improvement to make our community one where people of all ages can participate in activities, be connected to the people and places they love, and stay healthy and active even at the oldest ages.

EXERCISE REGULARLY

SEEK MENTAL STIMULATION

MAINTAIN SOCIAL CONNECTIONS
