Your Opinion Counts!

Assessment SurveyThe Area 12 Agency on Aging is conducting a Needs Assessment Survey, August through October of 2014. We are partnering with local libraries and Senior Centers in your county. The survey is anonymous and for residents age 50+. It is important because the data collected from the surveys will help determine what senior programs and services will be offered in the five counties over the next four year cycle, 2016-2020, by Area 12 Agency on Aging.
