Missouri’s Master Plan on Aging wants to hear from you!
Town Hall Events are now planned at an Area Agency on Aging near you.
Aging with Dignity: Missouri’s Master Plan on Aging, was established by Governor Mike Parson through executive order in January 2023. Since that time, an advisory council comprised of legislators, state agency leaders, non-profit organizations, Area Agencies on Aging, and other community partners has been convened to guide the process of creating the plan.
Seven subcommittees comprised of subject matter experts from diverse communities of practice and constituents have been meeting regularly to assess the resources and services currently available in the state, find areas of duplication or gaps in service, and determine possible areas for growth.
A series of town hall-style meetings will be held across the state to gather feedback from local individuals who know about challenges in their own communities. These events are free and open to anyone who wants to influence the direction of the state when it comes to aging in Missouri.

Town Halls are co-presented by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) and Missouri’s ten Area Agencies on Aging.
