North Florida Older Population Set to Grow in Next 25 Years

In the next 25 years, regions of North Florida such as Jacksonville and St. Augustine will double in its population of older residents. Along with this change, come changes in other markets in these regions such as the pricing of housing. As of right now, the cost of housing is the biggest obstacle that these areas will need to overcome in the next coming years.

Unfortunately right now people are paying more than half their income for their housing in these areas. In a recent report titled, Re-think Aging, these problems were discussed. Projections regarding the amount of older residents expected in the next coming years along with their jobs were also made.

The results of the report find that not only will there be more residents, but there will be more jobs open for them and their life expectancy will increase which is both a cause for hope and concern.

The cities have come up with recommendations that will be implemented in the next two years in order for these cities to be more accommodating to older residents. Some include developing more workplace policies, more emphasis on healthcare training and educating the community on age discrimination.
