Planning for the growth of the Older Adult Population in Howard County

These scenarios are based on the research conducted
including:
- scans of national and local trends in aging across a wide range of

- an inventory of current Howard County programs and services,

2035. Discussion of the scenarios among Advisory Committee members and
others led to definition of the “preferred future” used as a basis for planning
recommendations in the main body of this report.
