NORCs, Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities, is a demographic term describing neighborhoods or buildings in which a large segment of the residents are older adults.
Faced with a burgeoning aging population that will reach nearly 80 million with the retirement of the Baby Boomers, UJC (United Jewish Communities) believes strongly that Federal aging policies must align with current and foreseeable aging trends in order to best serve this population. By all accounts, the vast majority of older Americans want, or, by necessity, will remain living in their homes, even as they grow frail.
I’m working with our county’s Office of the Aging to see if my neighborhood would qualify as a NORC. I’d love to spend the rest of my years in my home, and I hear that from many, many other seniors.
Here’s a website where you can find out more about NORCs.
