The Blueprint for Healthy Aging in New Jersey


The Blueprint for Healthy Aging in New Jersey is designed to help you and your community take steps to help older adults stay healthy and active by providing:

  • County-level demographics on older adults and their health status;
  • Information on the benefits of healthy behaviors that can improve the quality of life for seniors,
  • Public policy recommendations and strategies for containing health care costs; and
  • Examples of cost-effective New Jersey-based model programs that can be implemented locally to support older adults in pursuing healthy behaviors.
