How is Sonoma County doing in aiding the elderly and the disabled? The County’s Area Agency on Aging is conducting a Senior Needs Assessment Survey asking for your input on future programs and services for older adults, adults with disabilities, and their caregivers. The survey is conducted every four years and will help define the needs of older adults, adults with disabilities, and their caregivers and will be used to build recommendations for improving services.
There are three ways to participate in the survey:
- Online in English at SeniorsOfSonoma.org or in Spanish at TerceraEdadSonoma.org.
- Paper copies of the survey, in both English and Spanish, are available at senior centers and locations where older adults access services, or by request to the AAA at 707-565-5900. Mail completed surveys to the AAA in the envelope provided at no cost.
- At a virtual or in-person group discussion about aging issues on one of the dates listed below. To register, visit SeniorsOfSonoma.com or call 707-565-5900 at least one week prior. You may also request language or other interpreter services.
