The Southwestern Pennsylvania Partnership on Aging leads the Age-Friendly Greater Pittsburgh initiative. The initiative, which recently celebrated its 5-year anniversary, is dedicated to making our region more inclusive and respectful of all ages. To learn more about the initiative, or review its action plan and most recent progress report, visit www.swppa.org/agefriendly .
From now until Feb 28, the initiative is surveying Allegheny County residents ages 45 and older. The survey questions cover topics important to all of us, including home and community, transportation, housing, health and wellness, social connection, and COVID-19. The information gathered will inform the focus of their work. The survey is available online at Age-Friendly Survey. They are also working with a team of AmeriCorps VISTAs to complete surveys via phone calls; if that’s your preferred option for participating, please call the intiative’s Project Manager Randi Vega at 412-439-2025.
People who complete the survey can enter a drawing to win some great, locally-sourced prizes, including an iPad! They want to hear from as many Allegheny County residents as possible, so please feel free to forward this link to others in the community.
