Advancing Vision, Leadership, and Advocacy for an Aging Arizona.

 
Welcome to the Governorís Office on Aging where we are dedicated to ensuring that Arizona is indeed a good place to grow old in. By the year 2020, one in four people living in Arizona will be over age 60, and in an effort to make sure that our state is ready for such a demographic shift, the Governorís Office on Aging continues to work with state and local agencies and organizations on numerous aging-related policy and program initiatives. We invite you to become involved with our work to help support the right of all Arizonans to live with dignity and independence throughout their lives.

The Call to Action in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia related diseases is underway!  Governor Ducey asks all Arizonans to consider what you can do to make a difference, offer hope for those directly impacted or find assistance. Read the Governor’s proclamation posted HERE.  Quick resources found HERE

The Call to Action urges all Arizonans – including persons living with the disease, caregivers, researchers and educators, health and human services, employers and policy makers – to consider what steps can be taken to help achieve the goals of the Plan.
