Opportunities for optimal health and well-being should extend well into our senior years. With funding from Lake County Government, Lake County Build a Generation and Lake County Public Health Agency developed the Lake County Senior Master Plan. The Senior Master Plan identifies the community’s barriers to senior health, prioritizes those barriers and establishes goals and strategies for improving health outcomes for Lake County seniors.

In 2017, Lake County Public Health Agency and Lake County Build a Generation conducted a year-long, comprehensive assessment of the health issues concerning Lake County seniors. The needs and recommendations outlined in the 2017 Lake County Public Health Senior Master Plan were informed by more than 100 hours of interviews with local seniors as well as extensive research on best practices for supporting senior well-being.
