EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SENIOR CENTERS, INC. JULIE DANGELO AND PRINCIPAL OF THE CAREGIVER RESOURCES GROUP CHRIS CREMEAN
America is getting older. The good news is, more of us are living longer lives. The downside, as we know, is that advancing years bring additional challenges; often physical, medical, mental, emotional challenges that have to be addressed.
In our area, those challenges often fall squarely at the feet of the Area Office on Aging. Think of the 60-plus population. In 2000, Lucas County had 76,180 seniors. By next year, that number, balloons to 101,899.
With all of those extra folk, comes extra need for services for senior citizens.
Julie Dangelo, executive director of Senior Centers, Inc. and the campaign chair for the senior levy joins Chris Cremean, principal of the Caregiver Resources Group to discuss the immediate needs of seniors at the Leading Edge table.
Leading Edge airs Sundays at 8:30 a.m. only on WTOL.
