The Board will hear a request from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to approve the Marin Age-Friendly Action Plan. Marin residents, 28% of whom are age 60 and over, are living longer lives than ever before and wish to remain in their homes and stay connected to their communities. A broader array of public and private stakeholders need to advocate for and adopt more age-friendly and inclusive policies, services and programs as well as address institutional ageism and historic inequities. An advisory committee factored in survey feedback from more than 1,900 residents, focus groups in unincorporated areas, and interviews with department heads and community leaders as it formulated the Marin Age-Friendly Action Plan.
The Board approved the Marin Age-Friendly Action Plan.
