Community Assessment Survey

With more than one-half of the Baby Boom generation now age 50 and older, the nation is increasingly becoming populated by older adults. To better prepare for this aging population, Jefferson County conducts the Community Assessment Survey for Older Adults to assess the strengths and needs of its older community member.
