Ohio Department of Aging Annual Report

State Fiscal Year 2017


Ohio Department of Aging Annual Report cover image

For the past six years, the Ohio Department of Aging has worked with our state agency partners and the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation to position Ohio on the leading edge of solution-driven innovation for our growing and changing aging population. We are driven by the reality that Ohio is an aging state and our elders represent both challenges and opportunities.

Governor John R. Kasich has said that some of the biggest statewide problems can only be solved at the local level, and we agree. Every community is unique, as are the issues that are important to it, but there are some key issues that touch almost all of us in some way. Community involvement is crucial in addressing them.

At the Department of Aging, our mission is to deliver practical, personcentered strategies and services that will strengthen and support Ohio’s elders and their communities. We see it as our responsibility, working with Ohio’s aging network, to spark conversations and incubate innovative approaches at the community level to meet the needs of our elders and provide meaningful opportunities for them to engage with their communities in more comprehensive ways.

This year, we developed a new strategic plan that will drive our continuing work to ensure the voices of our elders are heard and that our programs are not only beneficial, but also easy to access in every Ohio community. We have made some exciting strides and are building new partnerships, and expanding existing relationships, to succeed in our mission. I am confident that, working together at all levels, we will achieve our goals and create better lives for our elders and their families.
