Plan for Aging
What? I’m going to get old? The Solano Master Plan for Aging is holding a forum to address the needs of older and disabled adults on Tuesday, January 30, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Solano County Events Center, Conference Room A at 601 Texas Street in Fairfield.
Solano County, in collaboration with Napa/Solano Area on Aging and Innovative Health Solutions (IHS), will unveil the Solano Master Plan for Aging (MPA), a strategic initiative to address the evolving needs of the growing population of older and disabled adults in Solano County. The plan is shaped with active input from community leaders and professionals to ensure a targeted, impactful approach.
The MPA is a proactive response to the observable diversification and accelerated growth of the older adult population in Solano County and the State of California. In the next decade, the number of older adults in Solano County is expected to double, representing 20% of the county's population. The plan outlines evidence-based approaches and five strategic plan goals to address this demographic shift and its unique challenges.
