Center Offers Toolkit for Local Communities on Aging Well

With the dramatic increase in the number of those approaching retirement age, the Center for Civic Partnerships created Aging Well in Communities: A Toolkit for Planning, Engagement & Action.

This toolkit gives local governments the resources they need to successfully plan for aging well in their communities:

  • Breaks down the aging well planning process into manageable steps and gives specific guidance for each
  • Provides a structured process for gathering different types of information from different sources at different times
  • Offers ways to involve residents, local government, older adult service providers, businesses, faith communities, nonprofit organizations, and other stakeholders representing the diversity of the community in the planning process
  • Presents a path to a future where older residents can age in place while continuing to engage in and contribute to the community

The toolkit also includes a community planning overview, which presents key elements of an aging well planning process, as well as guides to conduct surveys, forums and focus groups.
