The 2017 – 2020 Draft Area Plan details the plans for S&DS service delivery during this time period. The draft Area Plan was developed using information from the 2016 S&DS Community Needs Assessment conducted in late 2015 and early 2016. As the Area Agency on Aging in Lane County, S&DS develops a new Area Plan every four years to direct planning efforts for present and future aging and long-term services for older adults and adults with physical disabilities.

Every four years, S&DS conducts a Community Needs Assessment to help pinpoint the service needs of older adults and adults with disabilities and also identify gaps in the current service delivery system. This is achieved through the use of consumer surveys, focus groups and research from a broad range of sources.
S&DS uses information found through the Needs Assessment as a first step to create a strategic multi-year ‘Area Plan’ on how it will best target its discretionary funding, resources and services to meet those needs and further the S&DS mission. This may result in new services, changes in service delivery or partnership development with other agencies.
This most recent Needs Assessment was completed in winter and spring of 2016. It will be used to inform and guide the S&DS 2017 – 2020 Area Plan development.
