Subject: Aging Adults Community Survey

Dear Commission Members:

Every three years the Aging & Adult Services Agency (AASA), which is part of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, is required to create a state plan on aging to establish goals and priorities to meet the needs of Michigan’s older adults.  For the first time, we are excited to be able to offer the opportunity for community members to participate and help inform our plan.  The feedback we receive will be used to ensure the priorities selected for the plan support of the health and well-being of Michigan’s diverse older adult population.

Additionally, last fall AASA worked with Governor Whitmer on Michigan’s application and certification to become age-friendly, an initiative of AARP and the World Health Organization (WHO). The AARP network of age-friendly states and communities serves as a catalyst to educate local leaders and encourage them to implement the types of changes that make communities more livable for people of all ages, especially older adults. AASA is now leading the work to craft a plan to ensure Michigan implements programs and strategies to address the WHO’s eight domains of livability that influence the quality of life of older adults: outdoor spaces and buildings, transportation, housing, social participation, respect and social inclusion, civic participation and employment, communication and information, and community and health services.

I’m reaching out to you today because we would like your help in encouraging Michiganders 60 years and over to take a survey to help inform both our state plan on aging and age-friendly initiative.

Please share this information with your contacts or networks and encourage anyone 60 years and older living in Michigan to complete the survey.
