Community members ages 60 and up: the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) invites you to take an important survey.

DARS has contracted with Polco to seek the public’s insight on the Community Assessment Survey for Older Adults (CASOA). CASOA will inform the development of the next State Plan for Aging Services (Oct. 1, 2023 – Sept. 30, 2027), which guides the Commonwealth’s implementation of Older Americans Act programs and services and seeks to coordinate a statewide response to meeting the needs of older Virginians.

To participate in the survey, please visit between October 13-27, 2022. Please note: this is NOT an AARP website. Any information collected is subject to the host organization's privacy policy.

In conducting the survey, Polco is committed to a strict privacy policy—they only share anonymous, combined results. Participants’ individual data and responses are never shared.

The online survey is available in Arabic, English, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese. Those who receive the open participation survey link are encouraged to participate.

The findings from the survey will be integrated into the department’s needs assessment. The results will enable state agencies, local governments, community-based organizations, the private sector and other community members to understand more thoroughly and predict more accurately the services and resources required to serve older Virginians and their caregivers.

In addition, DARS encourages all state and community partners serving older adults to share the open participation survey link with their internal and external networks.

For more information or if you need assistance with the survey, contact DARS at (804) 662-9310.
