Area Plan on Aging

Planning Process

AgeSmart assesses service needs of older adults in the seven-county region every three years as a part of the planning process and establishes a priority service list annually. The service priorities reflect those services found to be the greatest need for those older adults in the planning and service area (PSA). A variety of methods are used to identify the needs of older adults, caregivers, and grandparents raising grandchildren in the PSA as outlined below.
