AGE of Central Texas, a regional nonprofit organization delivering services, education, and assistance to older adults and family caregivers, surveyed residents to better understand the region’s perceptions about aging.

The study of 400 residents in Central Texas also investigated preparations people have in place and the experiences of caregivers and was conducted in September 2018 in collaboration with Bloom Communications, a market research and communications firm, and Regina Corso Consulting.

THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE BELIEVE OLDER ADULTS WILL BE FORCED OUT OF AREAS IN CENTRAL TEXAS BECAUSE OF A SHORTAGE OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

Results from the study shed light on a number of implications for residents in Central Texas, including awareness of the fast-changing population, biggest concerns about their own experience as they age, perspectives on ageism and respondents’ own potential propensity to be future caregivers to older adults.
