What is the Aging Plan?

The Buncombe County Aging Coordinating Consortium (ACC) – a group of aging-services providers and older adult volunteers – is directed by the County Commissioners to develop and implement a 5-year strategic Aging Plan for 2018-2022. The Aging Plan directs how federal, state and county “older adult” funds are used in our community and provides focus and direction.


What will the Aging Plan address

The Aging Plan will address needs in areas such as:
  1. Health and social support services
  2. Housing and transportation
  3. Inclusion and participation in social events
  4. Employment and volunteering
  5. Information and communication
  6. Safe and accessible outdoor spaces
(Adapted from the World Health Organization & AARP’s 8 Domains of an Age-Friendly Community)

What is the Purpose of the Aging Plan Survey?

The purpose of this survey is to help the ACC understand our community’s current strengths and weaknesses in meeting the needs of adults as they grow older.
