Michelle Puzzo and M.D. Birmingham founded UR Community Cares in 2019 after they collaborated to improve community connections. They recognized the challenges that older adults face when beginning to experience declining physical and cognitive abilities, and decided to take action. They built the UR Community Cares digital platform as a way to match those in need with those in the same community who are eager to help.
According to a 2018 U.S. Census Bureau report, "In 2035 there will be 78 million people age 65 and older compared to 76.4 million under the age of 18. In other words, the elderly population will outnumber children for the first time in the country's history-a demographic shift that poses a unique set of public health challenges."
