The Community Survey of Older Adults, an effort being put forth by Area Agency on Aging of Pasco – Pinellas, Pinellas Community Foundation, Pinellas County, Pasco County, and the cities of Dade City, New Port Richey, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg, is officially launching this week. This is the first ever survey of its kind in Pasco and Pinellas Counties and the results are going to help the partner entities identify the services that are needed for older adults, caregivers, and adults with disabilities, helping to ensure resources are invested efficiently and effectively.
The partners are encouraging all community entities who work with seniors in Pinellas or Pasco to ensure their clients know and understand they may be selected to receive this survey. We ask that they please respond. Their voices will be heard!

St. Petersburg, FL, November 20th– For the tenth consecutive year, the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco – Pinellas (AAAPP) has received a monitoring report with no findings from the Florida Department of Elder Affairs (FL DOEA).
Each year, FL DOEA staff performs tests of compliance with federal and state programs, contracts, and sub-awards at each local Area Agency on Aging. Secretary of Elder Affairs Jeffrey Bragg noted AAAPP’s lack of findings for a full ten year period was an “exemplary achievement” and encouraged the Agency to continue to share its processes and practices with other Area Agencies.
