 Greetings,

On Wednesday July 28, Age-Friendly Olmsted County (AFOC) will conduct two orientation sessions. These sessions invite residents, organizations, and governing bodies to be part of developing an action plan based on the findings of the age-friendly community needs assessment released last month. These findings are available for viewing and download here: http://familyservicerochester.org/age-friendly-olmsted-county/.

 

We are offering two orientation sessions:

The late afternoon session will be held in-person.

The early evening session can be attended in-person or virtually. Evening virtual attendees may use this link:  https://familyservicerochester-org.zoom.us/j/83619927900?pwd=UURwbnRmZ1lsdER2RGtpc0s4djRrQT09

 

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.

 The age-friendly network process establishes a cycle of continuous improvement. The community needs assessment report released earlier identified needs and opportunities related to older adults in Olmsted County. Next steps for AFOC include developing a three-year action plan addressing the findings of the report. Community members, organizations, and governing bodies of Olmsted County are encouraged to participate in the action-planning process scheduled for completion in 2022.

 

We hope you will be able to join us.
