health of local seniors.
 Here are a few of the interesting findings from the report:
  • Nearly 19,500 seniors are (unpaid) caregivers
  • More than 20,000 of our seniors are veterans
  • Seniors are significantly more likely, than younger adults, to have been diagnosed with every major disease-except one
  • 21% of local seniors have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder
  • Less than 12% of sexually active seniors use condoms to protect from STDs
  • More than 20,000 of our seniors are veterans
