"ADVANTAGE ELDER FRIENDLY COMMUNITIES INITIATIVE" PROGRAM
The Center for Home Care Policy and Research (CHCPR.) Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY)
"The AdvantAge Initiative is a community-building effort focused on creating vibrant and elder-friendly, or 'AdvantAged,' communities that are prepared to meet the needs and nurture the aspirations of older adults."
"The AdvantAge Initiative survey provides a 'data snapshot' of how well seniors are currently faring in their communities. Local groups then use these survey data to help build broader awareness about aging, inform service and other planning efforts, and spur needed community-wide action in the not-for-profit, public, and private sectors."
The "AdvantAge, Elder Friendly Communities Initiative" Program takes survey data from seniors and their communities and builds action plans to implement age friendly changes. The goal is to assess, vision and learn how to implement senior friendly communities.
Community surveys asks communities questions such as: how well does your community help seniors live independently, lead full and productive lives and engage seniors as valuable and experiences contributors to society.
Planning senior friendly communities resources such as tool kits, statistics, reports, focus group information and presentations are available to teach communities how to make their community senior friendly.
