Members of Niagara County’s senior population and their caregivers have a chance to weigh in on government services for the aging in a new online survey currently being conducted by the Niagara County Office for the Aging.

The online survey (link) asks the aged population and their adult caregivers to rate the importance of various government services that promote their independence and health.

“We need feedback to tailor our programs to the local need,” explained Office for the Aging Director Ken Genewick.

The survey, along with a series of focus groups, is designed to garner public input in the operation and structure of various programs ranging from senior nutrition to transportation to various assistance services.

“We need to provide our aging population with the services that matter to them, and our Office for the Aging is trying to better determine what that looks like,” said Niagara County Legislator Keith McNall, R-Lockport, who chairs the Legislature’s Community Services Committee. “We hope our seniors and their caregivers take the opportunity to weigh in.”

The four scheduled focus groups will be held as follows:

  • June 29, 2 p.m., at the North Tonawanda Senior Center, 110 Goundry St., North Tonawanda
  • June 30, 10 a.m., at the John A. Duck Senior Center, 1201 Hyde Park Blvd, Niagara Falls
  • June 30, 2 p.m., at the Dale Association Social Centre, 33 Ontario St., Lockport
  • July 8, 10 a.m., at the Lewiston Senior Services Center, 4361 Lower River Road, Youngstown

 No registration is required for the focus groups. Refreshments will be served.
