BLAST FROM THE PAST - Willard Healthcare Center dedicated to older Americans

In 1963, only 17 million Americans were age 65 or older. Today, there are more than 36 million Americans over the age of 65, accounting for 12 percent of the total population. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that, by 2050, 87 million Americans will be age 65 or older - 21 percent of the population. One out of every nine baby boomers will live to be at least age 90. May is Older Americans Month. We thought it was important to take time out to celebrate the older Americans in our community. They play a vital role in our communities by providing volunteer and community service, by acting as historians of our traditions and cultures, and much more.

May is Older Americans Month. We thought it was important to take time out to celebrate the older Americans in our community. They play a vital role in our communities by providing volunteer and community service, by acting as historians of our traditions and cultures, and much more.

At Willard Healthcare Center, we celebrate older Americans every day. Our service standards are some of the best in the industry. They showcase our commitment to the older Americans we serve. From our innovative approach to fine dining services to our enhanced schedule of resident programming, Willard Healthcare Center is dedicated to keeping our older Americans active and engaged.

In closing, I would like to say “thanks” to the dedicated caregivers at Willard Healthcare Center. They work hard every day to care for and support both our residents and their families.
