County’s 50+ Community Action Plan

Posted on October 22, 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Fairfax Lions Club was pleased to have Ms Jacquie Woodruff present a summary of Fairfax County’s “50+ Community Action Plan” at our dinner meeting on October 21, 2014. The county is preparing for the “age wave” – the increasing portion of elderly in the county’s population. The action plan addresses various actions in the categories of services, safety and health, community engagement, transportation, and housing – to support that growing elderly population. For example, the county supports expanding Project Lifesaver – which offers technology and processes to assist those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive conditions in case they wander from their residence or caregiver.
