Bay Area Older Adults, Inc.

BAO empowers adults of all abilities to take charge of their health, embrace diversity, and become change agents for environmental sustainability.

Bay Area Older Adults (BAO) was founded by Anne Ferguson in 2008 out of her love for her dear grandparents, who passed away a few years earlier. At BAO, we are inspired by our desire to bring joy to and improve the lives of older adults. BAO is Anne’s humble offering to the older adult community in the name of her grandparents, Jacqueline and Jean–Paul Latil.
