The Athens Community Council on Aging (ACCA) is excited to announce the commencement of a comprehensive community needs survey aimed at identifying the specific services and programs local older adults desire to age well.

With a commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of our older community members, ACCA recognizes the evolving needs of our aging population. The survey, designed in collaboration with the University of Georgia’s J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development, local experts in gerontology, and other community members, will serve as a crucial tool in understanding the diverse preferences and needs of our aging neighbors.

“Since 1967, the Athens Community Council on Aging has been dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for older adults in our community,” said Eve Anthony, President/CEO at ACCA. “This survey empowers us to tailor our services today and years ahead to the unique needs and aspirations of our community, ensuring that we continue to provide impactful and meaningful support.”

Starting January 2nd, the survey will be available online here. The questionnaire mostly covers topics related to recreational and wellness offerings but also includes questions related to general support needed to age well.  All responses will remain confidential, and participants have the option to remain anonymous.

ACCA recognizes the invaluable perspective our community has and encourages older adults, their families, and caregivers to participate, as their insights will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of aging services in Athens. The survey will remain open until February 15th, and results will be analyzed by a dedicated team of professionals to inform future programs and resource development with ACCA.
