The over-65 population on Martha’s Vineyard will grow exponentially over the next 30 years, 134% between 2010 and 2030, while the over-65 population in the U.S. grows only 81%, and in Massachusetts, only 61%.
There is a need to plan for ways to help this expanding population.

NEW! Housing Options Handbook for Elders
We are happy to announce our new Handbook is printed and ready! This valuable resource for elders looking for housing information on Martha's Vineyard is based on Healthy Aging MV's Housing Options Forum hosted in March. The handbook contains a directory with important phone numbers and websites, as well as full summaries and slide presentations from the event. Printed copies are available for viewing at every Council on Aging and Island library; the Handbook is available here on our website to view, download, and print.
We know you have a story about what Island elders need. It may be your own (or that of your parent, friend, or neighbor) and concern affordable housing, transportation, caregiver support, the desire to age at home, or more.
You can help by getting involved to make our Island an "aging-friendly place."
