Informing the provision of services for older adults

Countywide Area Plan for Older Adults:
Your Plan, Your Voice!

Qr code and link for older adults' survey

Every four years, the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) prepares a Countywide Area Plan for Older Adults (CWAP) that strategizes the provision of services for residents aged 55+ and brings Alameda County closer to our goals as an Age Friendly Community. The services are provided by the AAA along with our network of community partners, which include the Advisory Commission on Aging, community-based organizations, public agencies, and the private sector. 

Planning for the 2024-2028 CWAP is underway, and your participation is crucial. By taking the CWAP Survey for Alameda County residents aged 55+, you help create an area plan that reflects your needs, your vision, and your perspective.

The CWAP's direction is steered by a committee that includes representatives from community-based organizations, cities, consumers, academics, and other stakeholders. Planning also includes multiple departments within Alameda County, including the Social Services Agency, Health Care Services Agency, Public Health, Behavioral Health Care Services, and other agencies. 

And, most importantly, you.

Printed versions of the survey are currently available in English, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Vietnamese, Farsi, and Korean, and will be available shortly in Tagalog, Khmer, Arabic, Hindi, and Amharic.
