Did you know that the fastest growing segment of our North Carolina population is people age 60 and older? Communities across North Carolina are coming up with plans that address issues on your mind and the minds of people 60+: Healthcare and Healthy Living, Transportation, Housing, Financial Security, Maintaining Independence, and Social Interaction.
The Guilford County Commission on Aging, a committee appointed by Guilford County Commissioners, is in the process of developing a Guilford County Aging Plan to address these issues and others. The first step in the process is to gather information from Guilford County residents about their needs and plans for the future. Your response, combined with input from other community members, will guide the work of the committee and agency partners.
Therefore, please complete the Aging Needs survey by clicking on the following link, or copy the web address into your internet browser.
Your responses to this survey are anonymous and cannot identify you in any way.
People younger than 60 are encouraged to complete the survey, especially if they are a caregiver for someone over 60 years of age.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your input is valued!
