Objectives: This goal focuses on creating and informing older adults about a user-friendly central hub where they can find up-to-date, relevant information about programs and services offered in Eagle County. Implementation: The current strategy is focused on creating a website which lists contact information for and the general services provided by four key community organizations which provide programs and services for older adults. Providing residents with information about available programs and resources will require ongoing collaboration. Currently, there is no central, well-known hub with up-to-date, easily-accessible information about programs and services— including those fulfilling critical needs—for older adults in Eagle County. Additionally, current marketing methods are ineffective at reaching Eagle County older adults with this information. 39 percent of older adults in the region think the availability of information about older adult programs and resources is good or excellent. 70 percent of Eagle County older adults had a problem in the last year knowing what services were available to them. 39% 70% Information gathered from: Northwest Colorado Council of Governments. 201 1.
