Orange County Master Aging Plan (MAP)
The Master Aging Plan (MAP) is a five year plan that provides comprehensive and coordinated delivery of community services and supports that foster lifelong community engagement and wellbeing to older adults in Orange County. The Department on Aging created its first MAP in 2002 and each new MAP continues to evolve to meet the needs, expectations, and contributions of a growing aging population.
There are a number of exciting new initiatives that are coming out of the 2012-17 Master Aging Plan: Transportion, Music in My Mind Orange County, and the most recent initiative, the Orange County Senior Housing Expo. Read about these initives at the links below, and watch for information about other intiatives coming soon.
This page is intended to make our tools, reports, and initiatives publicly available to assist other counties in the development of a Master Aging Plan and to inform the public about the "endless possibilities" in Orange County. Browse the links below for more information.
