There are many ways you can get involved and enhance the lives of older adults, people with disabilities, and their families in your community.
Agency on Aging \ Area 4 is a wonderful place to volunteer. One of the more well-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference in the lives of the older adults and people with disabilities that we serve. Lesser-known benefits of volunteering include rekindling a sense of purpose, reducing your stress, combatting depression, and keeping you mentally stimulated.

California’s Master Plan for Aging
Recognizing that California’s over-65 population is projected to grow to 8.6 million by 2030, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order calling for the creation of a Master Plan for Aging to be developed by October 1, 2020. The Master Plan will serve as a blueprint that can be used by state government, local communities, private organizations and philanthropy to build environments that promote an age friendly California.
