Age-Friendly Program Description
To complete a needs assessment and develop an action plan that will form an Age-Friendly Community Plan for the County of Prince Edward.
The Age-Friendly Community Plan will create actions that will involve the municipality, civic participation and coordinate the efforts of various seniors groups, organizations and agencies to be implemented, relevant and operational over a number of years.
The project involves creating a Steering Committee (may be a Seniors Advisory Committee in the future) and the hiring of a Consultant to complete a needs assessment and resulting Age-Friendly Action Plan. Use of existing frameworks including WHO and Age Friendly: Finding the Right Fit will help to shape the project and the resulting plan.
Civic participation, engagement, and reflecting local community needs are key to ensuring that the plan will be successful and will be implemented.
