Action Plan Download
Wayne developed its action plan with the help of a task force and extensive community survey. The community is focusing on four key areas: social participation, respect and social inclusion, health and community services, and communications and information. The township's primary goals are to increase awareness of existing resources and services, including information on transportation and other services, increase the number of multi-generational activities offered within the community, and create a multi-layered approach to providing resources and services to families affected by Alzheimer's and dementia.
Action Plan Highlights

Health and Community ServicesImprove cognitive and social engagement by providing coordinated affordable fitness activities geared toward older adults that also provide multi-generational interaction.
Respect and InclusionEnhance local multi-generational programs connecting older adult residents and college students through fitness and movement.
