The City of San José seeks to provide support for older adults who need or desire programs and services delivered at community centers and other City operated locations. We know that the needs and interests of older adults are changing, and we want to provide services and programs to respond to these changes. Because resources are limited, we want to identify the highest priority needs of the older adult community, and we are seeking your help.

Please tell us a little about what is important to you. Your feedback will help the City of San José to develop programs and services that respond to older adults’ needs and interests-now and in the future.
