Results from Fairfax Area Mobility & Transportation Options Survey for Older Adults and People with Disabilities
In March, AARP Virginia encouraged Fairfax residents to take the Fairfax Area Mobility Options Survey for Older Adults and People with Disabilities. The results are in and you can view the full report here. The survey instrument used 27 questions to learn about current trip patterns, unmet needs, barriers, and awareness of existing services. All older adults and people with disabilities residing in Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church were invited to participate. The survey yielded 1,163 responses, many thanks to those who responded.
The Commonwealth Council on Aging is sponsoring the 2013 Best Practices Award Program funded by Dominion Power targeted to organizations serving older Virginians and their families. As we struggle to meet the challenges of serving a rapidly aging population during a time of budget cuts and growing demand, we need to share our best practices and applaud our successes. Instructions, nomination forms, and information on previous Best Practices Award Winners are on the Commonwealth Council on Aging’s website www.vda.virgina.gov/council.asp. Nominations for the 2013 Awards must be received by March 1, 2013.
