Healthy Aging Regional Collaborative

More than 800,000 residents of Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties are age 60 and over. As this number rises with the aging of the Baby Boomers, the need to cost-effectively address the health and quality of life of older adults becomes one of our region’s most significant challenges.

Health Foundation of South Florida (as seen in the review)created the Healthy Aging Regional Collaborative and has dedicated $8.5 million to increase the region’s attention to healthy aging and establish an infrastructure capable of offering cost-effective programs and services that have been proven to improve and maintain the health and quality of life of older adults, especially by healthy cooking.

Under the banner of the Healthy Aging Regional Collaborative, senior services, community based health centers, health plans, parks, senior housing providers, universities, Veterans Affairs, nursing homes, home health agencies, etc.,  are working together to offer cost-effective programs and services and are successfully increasing physical activity levels, preventing injuries from falls, improving chronic disease self-management and better detecting and responding to depression among older adults.
