Action Plan Download
Collier County developed its action plan to collectively improve quality of life and build a healthier age-friendly livable community for residents of all ages. The plan is tied in closely with the county's community health improvement plan, which has a focus on five priority health areas: access to care, mental health, ending chronic disease, alcohol and drug use, and older adult healthcare. The age-friendly initiative builds on these health-based goals, and also prioritizes helping older adults to age in place safely and comfortably, and distributing community resources through an age-friendly lens.
Action Plan Highlights
Health and Community ServicesFocus on promoting healthy older adults by providing free health and wellness programs, and promoting programs to foster socialization, promote mental and physical fitness, and engage in cultural arts.
Communication and InformationPromote activities and participation for people with disabilities and different levels of income in trainings on laptop use, social media, and internet browsing.
HousingFocus on the unhoused by creating a homeless prevention and rapid rehousing program, and conducting outreach to homeless populations.
