Action Plan Download
Placer County developed its action plan in response to the community's growing older adult population. The plan emphasizes the needs of older adults and those with disabilities through the Aging and Disabilities Resource Connection (ADRC) model, which consolidates services and establish a single point of entry for long term services and supports. The initiative also focuses on reviewing and altering building codes, creating innovative housing opportunities such as pod villages, developing a coordinated effort at engaging and utilizing volunteers, increasing available shaded seating in our communities and installing buttons at bus stops and other gathering locations with recorded information on resources, services and events.
