York needs to take care of its seniors. To do so we need to look at the full spectrum of economics.
We need to make sure that lower economic seniors are not left out in the cold (literally and metaphorically speaking). And we need to provide the housing and amenities sought by aging baby boomers of the middle class and those of affluence.
We should support specific existing organizations like the county’s Council on Aging, seeking to understand their mission, needs, and successes.
We should look to provide ways for active adults to participate in our community as mentors and investors for positive change and progress.
We should make specific efforts to celebrate in our community the contribution of our senior citizens, be it through veteran celebrations or honoring volunteers or those who have made a difference in public and/or private leadership.
A simultaneous focus on seniors and children makes for a wholesome community.
