March 31, 2017 | Department of Aging & Adult Services has just released the first update to Live Long, Live Well: Marin County Area Plan for Aging 2016-2020. This is the current four-year plan for the Marin County Area Agency on Aging (AAA).
The four-year plan and this update will inform policy makers, funders, service providers, and members of the community about the needs of older adults in Marin County while engendering opportunities to improve their quality of life and sustain their independence.
Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Update of Live Long, Live Well: Marin County Area Plan for Aging 2016-2020 is the first update of the four year planning cycle, as determined by the Older Americans Act. The Older Americans Act requires Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) to submit an Area Plan every four years, with subsequent annual updates, which reflect strategies and activities to best serve the needs of older adults and family caregivers in their designated Planning and Service Area (PSA).
The planning process, including a needs assessment, undertaken in 2016 to develop this four-year plan identified priority areas and established goals for the AAA and the Commission on Aging. These are:
- Enhance quality of life, safety, and security for older adults
- Support and promote local efforts to create livable communities for all
- Improve visibility and usability of information, services, and resources
- Encourage innovative approaches to policy and services through community collaboration and advocacy
