Introduction to Seniors CAN

More than 37 million Americans are age 65 or over. That number is expected to double in the next 20 years. The Seniors CAN program was developed in Las Vegas, which is now one of the nation's top retirement destinations. More than one-fourth of the two million Clark County residents are in the 55-plus age category. These older adults must be given ways to maintain their independent living status in the community and their quality of life. The Seniors CAN educational program was developed to help fill that need and can be adapted for any locale. Some of the examples in certain lessons can be localized to any community with a minor amount of research. (i.e. lessons F-1, F-2, P-1)
