  • The Iowa Department on Aging, AARP Iowa and the Older Iowans Legislature are seeking input from Iowans on the biggest challenges when it comes to aging in Iowa as they begin to prepare for the next legislative session.

    The three organizations are working together to ask residents of all ages for their thoughts on what Iowa can do to improve the quality of life for its older population through a brief online survey posted on the Department on Aging’s website. Information gathered from the eight-question survey, which focuses on issues impacting older Iowans and their caregivers, will help inform the groups and elected officials as policy is developed for the upcoming legislative session in January.

    “This is a great opportunity for Iowans to offer direct feedback to the Department on Aging on what policies and concerns are on their minds, and ways to address their individual and family needs as they get older,” said AARP Iowa State Director Brad Anderson.
