APPROACH

EDUCATION

AAI’s Inform&Connect Academies instruct front-line workers and others about resources and skills needed to ensure effective and efficient service delivery.

POLICY ADVOCACY

AAI’s Advocacy Alliance supports policies, programs, and funding for the well-being of older adults in Marin. AAI also encourages housing solutions and provides, in partnership with others, accessory dwelling unit workshops to expand housing opportunities for older renters in Marin.

SERVICE INNOVATION

The Detect&Connect workshop, funded by the Mental Health Services Act in Marin County, offers a free, three-hour interactive training to Marin County organizations and neighborhoods. The workshop teaches how to recognize mental health and dementia issues in older adults, also offering communication skills and connecting participants with helpful resources.
