The CHIP summarizes the community’s top health priorities, with Independently Aging in Place identified for targeted resources and community focus through 2017. In 2015, following the CHIP Action Plan which calls for the initiation of a five-year plan for aging in place, ECPH began gathering data through community surveys, focus groups, interviews, and meetings. The Aging Well Steering Committee was formed during this time, composed of community representatives with a keen insight into senior life, needs, and resources in Eagle County. This committee was charged with identifying and prioritizing goals and objectives for the Initiative. For the action phase of the Initiative, the ECPH Core Team identified and recruited members for an Advisory Council and four Action Teams to help provide direction and carry out action plans, respectively, for the Initiative’s prior- itized goals. Members of the Steering Committee were invited to join an Action Team of their preference. (See Appen- dix C: Timeline of the Aging Well Initiative.) The Aging Well Collaborative and Advisory Council are assembled and begin meeting quarterly.AgingWellActionPlan is created and implemented. Older Adult Collaborative Group transforms into a Steering Committee of community representatives with insight into senior life, needs, and resources, assembled and begins meeting quarterly.
