The nation’s baby boomers have already begun turning 65 setting off an unprecedented growth in the state's older population. By 2025, nearly 20 percent of New York's population will be over age 65. Just 13 years from now 8,000 baby boomers will be turning 80 years old every day in the U.S. AARP now has 65,000 members over the age of 100 across the US. 850 live in Suffolk County. As our nation – and state and county– undergoes this population shift, we are also experiencing a change in the paradigm of retirement. More and more older adults today are staying in their homes and communities with the goal of remaining independent and living active, vital lives.
