2022 Outreach Survey

The Shrewsbury Council on Aging (COA) will be conducting an outreach survey of approximately 5500 households consisting of residents age 60 and over, and the survey will be open through April 30.  “The COA mission is to advocate for and to develop programs and services that enhance well-being and quality of life, and to create a welcoming, secure and inclusive community for seniors.” Although the Senior Center is central to this mission, our reach extends beyond into the broader community, working in partnership with area organizations to provide resources and services essential to the well-being of seniors and their families. Information gathered from the survey will help us better understand the needs of our community, as well as identify opportunities so that we can enhance our outreach and delivery of programs and services.
