Novi Older Adult Services Strategic Plan at a Glance
The make-up of America is changing, more Americans are living longer, healthcare awareness is on the rise, advanced technology is changing lifestyles, economic factors vary widely, and the senior population is rapidly increasing. As prominent leaders of the Novi community, the need to position ourselves for the changes is critical as we service three distinctive age groups in the next five years. The Strategic Plan provides guidance to Older Adult Services (OAS) staff as they provide direction, support and programs to the Silent Generation (1945 and earlier), Baby Boomers (1946-64) and Gen X (1965-80).
To understand the needs and interests of Novi residents 55+, two formats were used to obtain feedback. The first format was hosting four Community Conversations and the second format was a survey. Through this process, the following Service Areas were established to promote healthy, active lifestyles that support independence and vitality for adults 55+ by providing opportunities and networks within the community for socialization, health and fitness, transportation, life-long learning and support services.
- Exercise and Fitness
- Health and Wellness
- Life-Long Learning
- Social Enrichment
- Support Services
- Transportation Services
Global planning will be essential in all service areas. Staff will take into consideration age, cultural diversity, economics, socialization, interest, health and housing needs, accessibility and evolving trends.
