Age-Friendly Greater Pittsburgh is dedicated to making our region more inclusive and respectful of all ages.
Our population is growing older—and fast. Every day across the country, 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65. Here in Southwestern Pennsylvania, between 2015-2030, we will experience a 40% increase in the number of people ages 65+. Between 2030-2045, we will experience a 75% increase in people ages 85+.
At Age-Friendly Greater Pittsburgh, we see this new demographic reality as an opportunity. It means our region has a new, growing resource—people with career expertise, lived experience, buying power and diverse skills and interests.
And it means it’s time for us to take action. A region that’s more accessible and welcoming is one that’s better for older people—and better for everyone.
