Program Participants Web Survey

DAIL has engaged BerryDunn, an independent consulting firm, to use a multi-method approach to complete a statewide needs assessment. The results of BerryDunn’s review will assist in the development of Kentucky’s State Plan on Aging, a program requirement that is submitted to the Administration for Community Living (ACL). This plan provides goals and objectives related to assisting older Kentuckians, their families, and caregivers. It is the blueprint for coordination and advocacy activities the Commonwealth of Kentucky will undertake to meet the needs of older adults and support DAIL’s mission statement: “to promote the welfare, dignity, and independence of older adults, individuals with physical disabilities and adults in need of a guardian.” 

BerryDunn has developed a web survey to gather information from participants and caregivers interested in sharing their feedback. The survey's purpose is to assist with identifying and prioritizing service needs for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, including an evaluation of the programs currently provided by DAIL. The findings from the web survey, which will remain anonymous, will also be used to create listening session questions to affirm the information gathered, dive deeper into a topical discussion, and close gaps in the knowledge for the assessment. The survey should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete, and you will have the opportunity to share your opinions regarding the current structure and status of the organization. Your participation is critical to help ensure the success of this project and the changes that result from it. It is important that this survey is completed in a timely manner to gather critical information, develop findings, and make appropriate recommendations to DAIL leadership for assistance with the State Plan on Aging. 

We kindly ask that you complete the survey by February 26, 2024.
