Purposeful Aging

Survey for the aging

Between 2010 and 2030, L.A.’s population of people over 65 is expected to nearly double, from 1.1 million to 2.1 million.

Input from residents will be used to develop an Age-Friendly Plan for the Los Angeles region.  This confidential PALA Survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and can be filled out by anyone 18 years of age or older who resides in the County or City of Los Angeles. Participants are asked to take the survey in their preferred language.

Culver Palms Meals on Wheels is working closely with the City of LA Dept.of Aging to move this plan forward. We thank you for your participation.
