Clackamas County Social Services seeks input on older adult services

From transportation to in-home care and energy assistance, Clackamas County Social Services offers a range of services for older adults and people with physical disabilities to support independence and quality of life. Help us decide what types of programs to offer in the future by taking our Community Needs survey by April 15. 

From the last survey conducted in 2019, the county learned that older adults needed more transportation options. In response, we launched #ClackCo Connects, a free shuttle service that gives rides to people in areas that buses don’t reach, connecting hard-to-reach areas with regional transit. 

“The insight gained from this survey helps us tailor relevant services to our ever-changing communities,” said Jeanie Butler, Older Adult Services Program Manager.

The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete and covers a range of topics focusing on quality of life, access to resources, housing and mental health. The county is most interested in hearing from the older adult community, as well as their caregivers and loved ones. 

This survey is part of the county’s Area Plan, work the county does every four years to identify needs and create a long-range plan for addressing these issues. Social Services staff will report their findings online and in person this fall. 

To request printed surveys, contact Jennifer Much Grund at or 971-865-1950. 

The survey is also available in Spanish and Russian.
