In ad- dition, ECPH conducted a Community Conversation to gather additional commu- nity input to help with prioritization. From these two groups, the following areas were prioritized (listed below in no particular order) for immediate focus by Action Teams, composed of community members and representatives from community organizations: • Connection to Resources: Older adults know about and use programs and services, including, but not limited to, those for critical needs. • Specialty Healthcare: Healthcare providers and key specialists serve, educate, and advocate for aging adults, and consider the unique needs of the aging population within their services. • Housing: Older adults have ample options for safe, high-quality, and accessible independent housing. • Social & Community Engagement: Older adults enjoy and benefit from an array of relevant, accessible pro- grams and events that consider their unique needs and interests. Addressing these goals will build a foundation for future work on other gap areas, including Community Design, Employment, and Transportation. To begin addressing the current goals, Aging Well Action Teams created an inventory of current Eagle County or- ganizations (“assets”), who have existing programs or services addressing or relating to the priority areas. The ac- tion plans for achieving the priority area goals are largely focused on making older adults aware of the services and programs available to them and/or on giving assets the information and tools they need to better serve the older adult population. Meeting the objectives for these goals is a critical first step toward ensuring there are systems that enable Eagle County older adults to age in place. It will be equally critical that the work continues beyond the current action plan. The needs of older adults will change, and new needs and gaps will present themselves in the coming years and decades. Meeting those needs will require a continued effort from all sectors of the community.
