Olmstead County created its action plan with the goal of creating a community where older adults are valued, respected, and engaged in communities committed to their healthy aging, inclusion, and well-being. The plan focuses on enhancing age-friendly community supports and health services, aging in place, and promoting age-friendly, intergenerational community engagement. The initiative promotes education, active communication, and working with partners to ensure that all community members are heard and reached.
