Northeast Indiana Community Leaders Look Towards the Future

August 6, 2008

Mayors, county executives, planners, funders, aging advocates and other community leaders from nine counties in Northeast Indiana are gathering to receive the first “dose” of data from the recent AdvantAge Initiative survey, the most comprehensive survey of older adults conducted in Indiana to date. Through the leadership of Aging and In-Home Services of Northeast Indiana, Inc., a three year Aging in Place planning initiative has begun. The initiative will make use of survey results to kick-start community participation and planning efforts throughout the region, in preparation for the coming “silver tsunami.” The luncheon summit will bring together leaders from the region to hear Dr. Stafford review area results and begin a process that promises to change the environment for aging in a positive way.
