Presentation of the Aging Together Plan for Supporting Older Residents of Virginia’s Rappahannock Rapidan Region Including Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock Counties

Topic Description:

Fauquier County had been participating with the other local governments in our region in preparing a strategic plan to serve the elderly population. To develop the Plan, a coalition, known as Aging Together, was formed, comprised of private citizens and public, private, and non-profit entities serving the elderly. After nearly two years of work, the group has developed the Plan for Supporting Older Residents of Virginia’s Rappahannock Rapidan Region.  This effort is funded in part by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, with matching funds from Fauquier County and other public and private organizations.  The Plan identifies needs and strategies in the areas of service expansion, workforce to serve the elderly, wellness, information to assist seniors and caregivers, County and regional collaboration, and financial support.  The summary report is available at the website below and will be available in printed form at the meeting.
