Master Plan for Aging


In June 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order calling for the creation of a Master Plan for Aging (MPA) (Executive Order N-14-19). The Executive Order affirmed the priority of the health and well-being of older Californians and the need for policies that promote healthy aging and the development of a comprehensive framework of service delivery for supporting the aging population. The MPA, released in January 2021, outlines five goals.

Goal One: Housing for All Stages & Ages 
Goal Two: Health Reimagined
Goal Three: Inclusion & Equity, Not Isolation
Goal Four: Caregiving That Works
Goal Five: Affording Aging
Older Adults Needs Assessment

The survey is now closed.

In January 2023, the Orange County Board of Supervisors commissioned a comprehensive, countywide older adults needs assessment. The assessment will consider input from older adults, people with disabilities, caregivers, community organizations, and existing programs and service providers servicing those age 60 and older. The information gathered will help the County understand the holistic needs of the aging population and seek a better understanding of the areas of greatest need, identifying barriers to accessing services, and more precisely identify gaps in services.  Additionally, this effort will guide the development of the County’s Master Plan for Aging.

The survey concluded on December 31, 2023. Analysis of the collected data is ongoing, and further updates will be provided soon.
