​Senior Services Master Plan

In 2010, the Thornton Senior Citizen Advisory Board presented City Council with this Senior Services Master Plan. The Board had a solid basis for its work in a comprehensive Needs Assessment of Older Adults Assessment carried out by a national research firm. The needs assessment consisted of a random phone survey, six focus groups, and interviews with key stakeholders in the Thornton Senior community.

Building from this research, the Board was charged with advising City Council on the needs, concerns and challenges facing older adults in the community. Over a 12-month period, the Board identified a  master list of 13 issues, and went on to establish benchmarks for each issue. New Plan updates for the Senior Services Master Plan are coming in May 2015. Check back for more information.
