Greetings!  Elders in Action is about sharing experience and creating a vibrant community for all ages through the active engagement of older adults.

We’re introducing some new features on our blog in order to recognize the accomplishments of older adults in our community and provide an outlet for you to publish your thoughts and feelings on aging. We’ll also be including informational articles on matters relating to aging and advocacy.

Our new blog forums will include: 

  • Profiles of older adults who have made a difference and continue to be actively involved in our community
  • Personal essays, short stories, poetry, etc. (500 words or less) that speak to the personal, community and societal issues facing older adults.
  • Articles related to advocacy for older adults and other aging issues to help inform everyone in our community

We’ve also added an experienced editor, freelance writer Barbara Schuetze, to help us write and edit the blog. Our goal is to keep the content relevant to older adults and their advocates in the community.

Please email or mail us your questions, personal writing to consider for inclusion, as well as suggestions for exceptional older adults in the community to potentially recognize.

Write to us at:

Elders in Action, 1411 SW Morrison St., Suite 290, Portland, OR 97205.  Or you can email us at

Feedback is the best way for us to give you the type of information you want. We encourage you to email us or call Mark at 503-235-5474.
