We are in the midst of the age wave, and growth in the senior population is largely following projections. At this trajectory, senior population in Cuyahoga County, and across Ohio, will peak in 2030 and slowly begin to fall. However,the percentage of residents 85 and older is projected to continue to grow as people live longer and are able to stay in their homes and communities.
