UPDATE: Read the summary report from the first two Age Friendly Forums.  Summary Report from Age Friendly Forums (604.2 KB)

Even if you missed the live forums, you can still watch the presentations from the forums (below) and/or answer the same questions that attendees did by taking the Age Friendly Forums survey. Your input is valuable as it will be analyzed in a report that will be presented to the county commissioners during a board meeting. 

The live forums in Gresham and Portland featured presenters from the Departments of Health and Human Services who described the current status of county age friendly services and their hopes for the future. Attendees then weighed in with their opinions in discussion groups. They said the issue that most needs to be addressed is housing, followed by transportation, doing more effective outreach, and valuing elders as a resource.
