Who can take this survey?

Adults aged 60 or older, living in Napa County.

Why is it important?

The results of this survey will help inform and shape the future of Napa County’s services for older adults.

To best serve older adults and increase the age-friendliness of our community, it is important that we ask for and record information on a variety of topics. Collecting this input provides valuable insight on how the public feels about community issues and can help guide strategic decisions and priorities in our community.

How do I take the survey?

The survey launches March 2023 and can be taken in any of the following ways:

  1. Online
  2. In person at a variety of locations – to be posted
  3. Via mail. Call us at 707-253-4248 or email us at and we will mail you a survey.

Napa County’s older adults have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To better understand the impact, the Napa County Board of Supervisors voted to support a team of community-based organizations in assessing the current needs of older adults (ages 60 and above).

This 22-month project will operate September 1, 2022 through June 30, 2024 and provide the following:

  1. An assessment of the current needs of Napa County’s older adults
  2. A strategic action plan that will identify how we can build resilience among older adults as they recover from the pandemic
  3. A fund development plan to close the gaps between older adults’ needs and what’s currently available in Napa County
