Richmond and Muncie

August 25, 2008

Eastern Indiana benefits from the long time leadership and innovative practices of two Area Agencies on Aging: Area 9 In Home and Community Services, based in Richmond, and LifeStream Services, based in Muncie. Area 9 and LifeStream representatives will be convening in Carmel, Indiana on August 26 to receive results from the AdvantAge Initiative survey conducted for each area. The agencies have been hard at work for two years to develop partnerships with key organizations that have a stake in the aging of the local populations -- service providers, public and private funders, municipal officials, higher education, and others. Armed with valuable survey data and enriched by local participation efforts such as focus groups and workshops, Area 9 and LifeStream will forge ahead to provide leadership in developing new solutions to current and future challenges around the changing demographics of aging.
