Here for Our Seniors


AMERICA is getting older. Baby boomers, that generation born between 1946 and 1964, started turning 65 in 2011. And every day, about 8,000 more Americans reach that milestone. The challenges of caring for this growing number of seniors are many. For example, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s is expected to reach 7.1 million by 2025—a 40 percent increase from the 5 million seniors currently affected. And dementia is just one of the health challenges we can face as we grow older. The risk of heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis and other serious medical conditions also increases with age. That’s the reason I’m proud to say that Main Street Hospital continues to provide a full range of advanced medical services, from joint replacement surgery to cancer diagnosis and treatment, to help seniors in our community enjoy healthier, active lives.
