How can Maine communities support older residents? Send us your ideas

We’d appreciate your feedback!

On Friday, Maine Focus published the first piece in a yearlong series on aging in Maine called Age of Opportunity. The series will highlight people, organizations, towns and businesses that are helping keep older residents safe, healthy and happy. Our first piece told the story of At Home Downeast, a first-of-its-kind initiative in Maine to help older residents maintain their independence in their homes as long as possible.

How do you want to see your community support its older residents? What are you concerned about as you age? How can we best serve your interests in this series? Please take our short, anonymous survey by clicking here. We’ll be sure to share the results with you in a few days. Thank you.
