Philadelphia Region Senior Resources

According to Michelle Sahl, PhD, associate teaching professor in the Health Administration Department of Drexel University, “The senior population is exploding. By 2050 one out of every five six people across the globe will be seniors. Pennsylvania comes in fourth as a state (after Maine, West Virginia, and Florida) in having the highest proportion of seniors. Philadelphia, within Pennsylvania, has a particularly high concentration,” she said. “Couple that with the fact that by 2050, 75% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas, you can imagine the volume of seniors represented within Philadelphia.”

Kristine Mulhorn, PhD, chair of the Health Administration Department at Drexel, further illustrated the aging future of Philadelphia, “90% of the senior population between now and 2040 is expected to occur in urban counties in Pennsylvania.”

Luckily, there are a large number of support and resource organizations both nationally and in the greater Philadelphia region, to support this growing trend. Here is a list of sources to obtain information, resources and help if you or a loved one are a senior-citizen looking to thrive amidst the ever-changing landscape of modern aging.
