Lakelyn Hogan, gerontologist and caregiver advocate, was recently featured on Hallmark’s
Home & Family. During the segment, Lakelyn promotes our social
movement, Ready to Care, advocating to increase the world’s capacity to
care for seniors.
Watch the Home & Family segment!
next time you’re out and about, look around. Do you notice more and
more older adults around you? You may not yet, but society is changing.
Soon, people over age 65 will outnumber younger ones, and it’s not just
in your neighborhood. The global population is graying at astonishing
rates, and it’s not slowing down anytime soon. Our rapidly aging society
is poised to impact us all. By 2050, the 65+ population will be more
than double that of the world’s youngest citizens. Additionally, the
fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population is 85+. As our older
adult population grows globally, so will the number of people who need
every day help.
This movement inspires and empowers people
through service, education, and giving. We hope that those who join in
Ready to Care will be more aware of the older adults around them and we
hope they will be encouraged to do little acts of care and service that
make a positive impact.
