Comprehensive Community Assessment of Detroit's Older Adults

April 2018 - May 2019

The proposed Detroit Area Older Adult Comprehensive Community Assessment will update the 2002 assessment data on older Detroiters in the context of a post-bankrupt Detroit along with rapidly gentrifying pockets of the city where displacement of seniors continues. Thus, this is a crucial time to collect data on the contributions and needs of seniors in Detroit’s changing environment and make recommendations to stakeholders and community-based agencies. Given the city’s leadership (Councilpersons’ Mary Sheffield and Casteneda-Lopez), and collaborating city departments (Health Department, Department of Transportation, Parks and Recreation, Disability Department) in this project, key stakeholders have expressed the benefit of this project for the future of the city, given the absence of a Senior Citizens Department at this time.
