Aging and Caregiving

Living Well in Our Best Years Newsletter 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.

Living Well in Our Best Years is a collaboration between the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of the North and the University of Wisconsin – Madison, Division of Extension, Bayfield County. We’re committed to providing information and resources to older adults, caregivers and family members to assist them in growing and aging with grace, dignity and respect. We hope you find the information in this and upcoming issues useful. We are always looking for topic suggestions. Please get in touch to let us know what you’d like to learn.
