Senior Citizen Services of Greater Tarrant County is celebrating its golden anniversary with a new name and logo, but with the same emphasis on empowering aging residents. The new name – Sixty & Better – was announced Thursday at the agency’s annual meeting.
Sixty & Better serves about 5,000 residents annually at 26 activity centers in Tarrant County. About 3,500 of that number are participants in the agency’s better meal program.
Jerome Mosman, the agency’s CEO, said in a news release that the need for services will continue to grow. “By 2030, the population of Tarrant County residents ages 65-plus is expected to be about 720,000, compared to today’s 200,000,” says Mosman.
“They will be more culturally diverse and have different experiences with technology than previous populations of mature adults. Their health and wellness needs will be different in many ways,” he said.
The nonprofit group worked with BrandEra on the new name and logo.
