Area Agency on Aging

We Want to Hear from You, Sonoma County! Complete Our Survey by June 30

Make your voice heard about issues of aging in Sonoma County! The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) invites community members of all ages to complete the anonymous survey online or on paper, or to join a group discussion at a location near them. The community’s input will guide the AAA and its Advisory Council’s new plan of action and funding priorities for programs and services for the next four years. The deadline to complete the survey is June 30.

We are asking residents of all ages to tell us their thoughts about the future as they age and about the needs of local older adults, individuals with disabilities and local caregivers. The survey asks you to rate topics of most and least concern in areas such as housing, transportation, remaining safely at home and caregiving. Residents can identify concerns about aging, including health and quality of life, and say where help is needed, such as care management, household help and managing medications. Gathered demographics will help identify locations the need special services and support. 

It’s easy to complete your survey!
