This growth in the older adult population will bring opportunities and challenges to the community, and the work being done through the Aging Well Initiative is only the beginning of what will have to be an ongoing process. Meeting the needs of the large numbers of older adults in Eagle County will require continued effort from all sectors of the community, as no single agency is currently equipped to do so alone. The model of partnership (Figure 10) that has guided the Aging Well Initiative is demonstrative of the type of com- munity-wide partnerships required to create an environment that supports healthy aging. Not only will community organizations need to collaborate to increase the civic engagement and quality of life of older adults, but govern- ments at all levels—municipal, county, state, and federal—and the private sector will need to plan and work together to keep older adults among the active participants and leaders in community decision-making. Figure 10: Aging Well Initiative Model Prioritized Goals & Objectives of the Aging Well Initiative During the Action Phase of the Aging Well Initiative, the Advisory Committee meets quarterly, providing guidance for the Initiative’s strategic direction and oversight of Action Team efforts. The Action Teams meet monthly, and will continue to do so until all of the goal objectives are accomplished or otherwise accounted for. While the Action Plan and Implementation Guide focus on the priority goals of Housing, Specialty Healthcare, Connection to Resources, and Social & Community Engagement, other goals, such as Transportation, Employment, and Community Design, will be phased in after the first round of priority goals have been met.
