A.L.A.G. to unveil action plan
Building on community input provided over the past the year, the Assisted Living Action Group will launch its strategic action plan, “Aging With Dignity,” here next Wednesday (Jan. 23).
Community stakeholders have been invited to attend the launch, which will take in the Shaw room at the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre.
The action plan is based on feedback from strategic planning workshops, the “Aging at Home Survey for Older Adults,” ongoing research, and community-based discussions.
At its strategic planning workshop back in October, A.L.A.G. made a commitment to use information and ideas shared by participants to complete a strategic plan to help guide their efforts as they move ahead.
Since then, members of the A.L.A.G. Core Planning Team have worked hard to create a strategic action plan using the input and feedback provided by numerous stakeholders and partners.
Many meetings and hours of works have been dedicated to this effort, said A.L.A.G. chair Erma Armit.
The team is now pleased to announce the plan has been completed.
“Our A.L.A.G. Core Planning Team appreciates the support and input received from community network partners regarding the ‘Aging with Dignity’ initiative,” said Armit, noting “Aging with Dignity” includes assisted living and supportive housing.
A PowerPoint presentation, also entitled “Aging with Dignity,” has been prepared and will be shown at tomorrow’s launch.
This presentation later will be shared with groups throughout Rainy River District.
“We look forward to receiving feedback from the participants on Wednesday,” added Armit.
“It will help our community to move forward with this important community initiative.”
