BASSC has finalized the Bay Area Adult & Aging Services: 2022 Strategic Planning Report, assessing anticipated future needs in adult and aging services in the greater Bay Area. The report incorporates information from an array of sources, including 31 key informant interviews with Bay Area leaders in Adult and Aging Services, county administrative data, and publicly available data sets. Interviews were conducted between March and July 2022. Data were analyzed to highlight current issues in Adult and Aging Services and to illustrate key accomplishments, challenges, and strategic priorities.

The BASSC research team conducted interviews, analyzed available data, and drafted the report and case studies. Adult and Aging Services directors developed  case vignettes to illustrate the experiences of elderly and disabled clients receiving services and supports. Case studies were reviewed by interview participants for accuracy. BASSC Adult Services Committee members reviewed and provided input on the full report.
