Community's Input Needed In Preparing Seattle Area Plan On Aging

Irene Stewart. a Planner, with the Aging and Disability Services  (ADS), a state-designated Area Agency on Aging for King County, sent us email about an on-line survery available to everyone to fill out. 

Every four years, ADS prepares a new Area Plan on Aging for King County, which guides their work. And especially now as they are preparing a new plan for 2012-2015,  they would like to have input from Seattle and King County residents to include.

Community members of all ages are encouraged to complete the online questionnaire and especially those who are 60 years or older, adults with disabilities, and family caregivers.

The input received from the questionnaire will help shape the development of strategies over the next four years, in promoting quality of life, independence and choice for older people and adults with disabilities.

"Everybody is aging, so everybody should care" Irene wrote in her email.

For more information about the Area Plan on Aging or the questionnaire, contact ADS planner Karen Winston at 206-684-0706.
