Marion County

August 25, 2008

Five central Indiana Area Agencies on Aging are taking the lead to develop local planning initiatives from the recently released AdvantAge Initiative survey. CICOA Aging and In Home Services represents eight central Indiana counties. CICOA was one of the pioneering organizations involved in the original AdvantAge Initiative project dating to 2000. While the current survey considers all eight counties, the data can still provide an interesting comparison over time to the 2000 survey conducted in Marion County.

From the original AdvantAge Initiative project, CICOA and multiple partners have developed the Lifelong Learning Communities initiative and have also made significant strides in improving the home environments of seniors on Indy's southeast side.
