Aging in place, living with dignity, being part of a community, feeling safe, maintaining health and mobility, being able to aspire and achieve, and being able to exercise choice – these are expectations that all of us have as we age. Community-based supportive services are a necessary part of the equation in helping us meet the challenges of aging and live successfully in our communities. This is true now, and it will certainly be true in the future when every fifth person you meet will be over 65.
AREAS OF FOCUS
Engaging Policy Makers
We engage policy makers to advance solutions that improve older adults’ access to food, housing, healthcare, and the supportive services that have powerful positive impacts on their health and economic security.
We’re working to build partnerships between health care entities and community-based organizations in order to effectively address the social determinants of health.
Working in Coalition
Working together in coalition and collaborating across silos and sectors, Senior Services Coalition is advancing policy change to strengthen the network of services that help older Alameda County residents live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
