Most of Washington County’s 45,000 adults over the age of 65 are active and independent and wish to stay that way! OSU Extension Service offers information and educational programs to help older adults, their family members and caregivers face the challenges of aging in a positive and productive way. Attend one of the many public programs or view or request written materials on topics relating to healthy aging.
