All Area Agencies on Aging and Disabilities are required to create a four-year “Area Plan” that addresses the needs of older adults, adults with disabilities and their caregivers while assessing the strength and weaknesses of current community resources available to them. The Area Plan is developed with broad public input required by the Older Americans Act (OAA). Our Advisory Council plays a major role in the development of the Area Plan. The plan has to be approved the Department of Social and Health Services Aging and Long Term Support Administration (ALTSA). Once approved, the plan serves as a basis for planning, program development and funding priorities for the people and regions we serve in our five county planning and service area.
AAADSW 2020-2023 Area Plan Survey
The Area Agency on Aging & Disabilities of Southwest Washington plans programs to help older adults (60 years of age and older) and adults with disabilities stay in their homes and to support unpaid family caregivers. We invite you to take our 2020-2023 Area Plan Survey. This survey will help determine which programs are available in your county, and how funding is spent. The survey takes less than eight minutes to complete. Your responses are anonymous.
