"

We are pleased to announce that Age-Friendly Olmsted County (AFOC) will release its Community Assessment Findings Report during a virtual event at 10am on June 29. The report describes the state of services, facilities and environment for our local aging population. The community assessment committee conducted original research, gathered public input and utilized data from a variety of sources.

Attached is an advance copy of the report. After the event, the report will be available at http://familyservicerochester.org/.

AFOC is a cross-sector initiative to ensure that residents of Olmsted County have what they need to live with autonomy and dignity in all life’s stages. When Olmsted County became a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities in early 2020, it officially joined a global movement, with roots in the World Health Organization, to help cities and communities respond to an aging population and prepare for a permanently older society.

Age-friendliness brings a lifespan approach to all aspects of the community. An age-friendly community is one that is safe and secure, has affordable and appropriate housing and transportation options, and offers supportive community features and services. Once in place, these resources enhance personal independence; allow residents to remain in their homes and communities as they age; and, foster residents' engagement in the community's civic, economic, and social life.

In committing to membership in the network, the Olmsted County Board asked Family Service Rochester to lead the age-friendly planning process. Family Service Rochester now convenes and facilitates AFOC planning activities and the preparation of the planning report.

The network process establishes a cycle of continuous improvement. The community assessment report is part of the planning stage. It describes the findings of a community needs assessment designed to identify the greatest needs and opportunities related to older residents in the county.

Next steps for AFOC include developing a three-year action plan addressing the findings of the report. Community members of Olmsted County are encouraged to join the action planning process scheduled for completion by early 2022.
