In 2012 there were 43.1 million over 65 in the US but in the next 15 years our population of over 65-year-olds will grow to 71 million by 2030 in the United States alone and top out at 83.7 million by 2050. The global population over 65 will have tripled from 524 million in 2010 to 1.5 billion in 2050. This expanding demographic can create a crisis or create a great opportunity for business and society. In Sonoma County, this is the year of the Senior. We will explore some myths on aging, along with the challenges, and opportunities in the North Bay that this demographic will create.
