Aging in Place

The "Aging in Place" initiative is a community needs assessment studying quality of life issues along various parameters for seniors living in the Newport County region. In 2011, in partnership with the Edward King House, Child & Family, the Housing Authority of the City of Newport, Newport Partnership for Families, John Matson Consulting, and Newport County Chamber of Commerce, the Visiting Nurse Services took the lead in securing funding from the Newport County Fund of the Rhode Island Foundation and the Rhode Island Department of Health to conduct a study through surveys, focus groups, and key informant interviews of 550 seniors over 65 years old and approaching seniors 50-64 years old.

The needs assessment is the first step toward the objective that Newport County be a model community that supports aging in place with coordinated, cost-effective, and excellent client-centered services for elders and their families.
