The community movement is well underway. Age-Friendly Sarasota initially completed a two-year assessment of Sarasota County's age-friendly assets (May 2015 – May 2017). The assessment explored aspirations of Sarasota County's residents as they relate to the World Health Organization's 8 Domains of Livability. Utilizing data from the assessment combined with data on existing community assets, the Age-Friendly Sarasota County Action Plan was developed and shared with the community.
The Implementation Phase started June 1, 2017 and runs through May 31, 2020. The work focuses on community sector contributions to the goals, objectives, and strategies identified in the Age-Friendly Sarasota County Action Plan.
