Adult next to senior in wheelchairWhen health challenges occur, access to healthcare and community support is important. During listening sessions, many older adults reported they were not aware of the variety of services available to them. They also wanted to learn more about technology that could help with aging in place. Some older adults expressed interest in joining a Village, a social support network in which members help each other by providing transportation, friendship and support needed to remain in their homes.


When changes and challenges in health occur, older adults and their families are able to find and access relevant resources, support, and care in their community. The community promotes mental and physical health for people of all ages and abilities.
