Action Plan Download
An action plan is based on the results of community surveys identifying needs within the 8 Domains of Livability that influence the health and quality of life of older adults. While there is flexibility in how a plan is created and what it will do, every action plan includes a statement about what can be achieved, target dates for goal completion, identification of participating organizations and indicators to measure progress. The action plan is an "active" rather than static document. Revisions and amendments are a sign of program improvement and progress.
Action Plan Highlights
Communication and InformationCreate a new, updated resource guide for older adults that includes topics like housing options, new methods of transportation, healthcare services, and veterans' services.
Social ParticipationBuild out a new, multigenerational space that will expand the existing network of recreational and health-promoting resources, meeting the demands of a growing community.
Respect and InclusionCombat discrimination and ageism by connecting community boards--including those focused on youth, teens and older adults.
