Collaborative, and cross-sector, partnerships are the key to implementing successful projects, policies, and initiatives. It is important to get the right leaders at the table. Local government, community planners, aging and disability advocates, and subject matter experts are all important players. The list below will help you identify your local and regional leaders in community development and the aging and disability fields.
Meaningful metrics are the foundation of the planning and evaluation of our work. There are several publicly available and user-friendly data sets that can help determine the focus of your project.
Successful age-friendly projects have been implemented around the world. It’s important to get to know your own community and what have been the identified priorities for older adults and aging services.
The California Master Plan for Aging focuses on five bold goals and twenty-three action areas for the state. To be successful at the local level, it is important to determine the primary problems to be solved and areas of opportunity for your community. Resources that align with the MPA and could be helpful at the local level are below.
Goal One: Housing for All Ages & Stages
Goal Two: Health Reimagined
Goal Three: Inclusion & Equity, Not Isolation
Goal Four: Caregiving That Works
