Channeling a Community's Aging Resources.
Smith, Daniel J.
This report addresses the issue of community utilization of resources for the elderly population. A strategy for channeling resources is presented, including: (1) design of a comprehensive aging services administration and delivery plan based on needs assessment data and a service resource inventory; (2) development of a service agencies network to create an information, referral, and advocacy system; (3) establishment of a life-long learning program with a local university; and (4) the integration of government and community resources. Although geographically specific, this program could serve as a model for other communities to rediscover the value of their elderly citizens. (Author/JAC)
