Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
Pinellas County United States of America
Pinellas County has a number of programs and services available to residents however they have not been highlighted specifically to a particular age/demographic. In addition, Pinellas County contracts with community service providers for a myriad of services. We will continue to highlight these through a variety of communications vehicles including social media, news releases, a webpage focused on “senior connections,” speakers bureau topics and more. Further a series of focus groups will help identify and gaps in services or opportunities to enhance services for the aging population and resources for caregivers. A proclamation was read on August 9, 2016 for National Senior Citizens Day August 21, 2016. In addition, Pinellas County launched it’s Senior Connections webpage in conjunction with the proclamation and issued a news release to promote the new resource.
