Aging Unbound: A Celebration of Older Americans

The theme of this year’s Older Americans Month is “Aging Unbound,” which offers an opportunity to explore diverse aging experiences and promote flexible thinking about aging, and how we all benefit when older adults remain engaged, independent, and included. Today, there are more than 46 million older adults aged 65 and older living in the U.S., and it is projected that by 2030, one in five Americans will be over 65.

“As the number of older adults is rapidly growing, social service agencies will need to provide more assistance to seniors in remaining active and independent,” said Susan Belgrade, JFSLA Senior Director of Multipurpose and Senior Centers. “At JFSLA, social workers address complex healthcare needs, help with financial challenges by connecting clients to community and governmental resources, and address psychological needs. Our centers provide socialization programs and support to older adults and their families and caregivers.”

JFSLA provides resources and a variety of programs to our aging Angeleno community to help them live happier and healthier lives, such as wellness and engagement programs, social services, care management, free meals, social connection programs, and special services for survivors of the Holocaust at our several multipurpose centers throughout LA. JFSLA also advocates for the aging community on the local, city, state, and national level. Our services for LA’s aging population are extensive:
