The Power of Senior Voices in Surveys 

November 22, 2022

To best serve older adults and increase the age-friendliness of your community, it is important to ask for and record information from older adults on a variety of topics. Collecting resident input provides valuable insight on how the public feels about community issues. This information can guide strategic decisions and priorities for your community. 

Engaging the community strengthens relationships, promotes transparency, and helps inform leaders on seniors’ actual needs. Furthermore, consistent data collection over time provides insights into shifting preferences, trends, and other needs within a community. However, persons age 50 and above are less likely to complete surveys.  

Today we pleased to welcome back Tauhric Brown, President and CEO of CICOA Aging and In-Home Solutions to talk about the power of senior voices in surveys and what can be done to better engage those voices.
