Aging and Caregiving

 The population in Bayfield County is changing. According to estimates, approximately half the total population in the county will be 60 or older by 2030*. This presents challenges as well as tremendous opportunities for inter-generational learning, sharing and support. Knowing where to start with an age- or disability- related question is the first step in meeting the challenges in life’s journey.*Wisconsin Dept. of Health Services Demographics of Aging in Wisconsin
