St. Louis Hosts Conference on Aging

St. Louis, MO – Developing support services to help St. Louis' elderly population stay in their own homes is the goal behind a conference held Tuesday at Washington University.

St. Louis is involved in a pilot program called Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities that provides for the needs of the elderly while helping them remain as independent as possible.

Organizers hope St. Louis' experience with the program will serve as a model for other communities across the country.
