Senior Life

by Chris Cattogio.

By the year 2030, there will be 71.5 million people over the age of 65.  More than twice the number in the year 2000.

Population over the age of 80, increased from 9.3 million in 2000, to 19.5 million in 2030.

18,000 reach the age of 50 every day.

By 2030, 1 of every 5 Americans will be over 65 years of age.

Seniors will outnumber children 14 and under for the first time in history.

This demographic transition has a huge impact on how we will live as we age. Life transitions that once were seamless, now are overwhelming and confusing.

Age in Place Management was created in response to the growing demand for assistance navigating the number of resources and services available in the Senior market.

Christine Catoggio, owner, has found more and more of her clients requests are for
assistance and guidance managing the increasing medical and non-medical responsibilities of aging at home. More frequent, also, are the calls from long-distance caregivers, concerned about their parents well being.

Christine Catoggio has more than 25 years in Hospitality, Marketing and Consulting.  At Age In Place, she combines her extensive industry background with a sincere desire to help other adult children of aging parents.  Christine understands first hand the challenges that adult children of aging parents face, and is passionate about helping families share long healthy lives and strong relationships.

In this column, our mission is to provide you with valuable information and resources to make informed decisions. We welcome commentary from qualified professionals, non-profit organizations, and businesses that provide important services  to the Seniors of our community.

Some of the Topics will include : Where do I go for help and resources? What type of care is right for me? What  legal affairs do I need to have in order? When should I be concerned about medication management?

If you have a topic that you would like to know more about, or would like to contribute information, please contact Christine Catoggio at Age in Place Management, 561-929-1195 or by email
