CA for ALL Ages and Abilities Day of Action

September 22, 2022

On Tuesday, September 20, the California Department of Aging and the Implementing the Master Plan for Aging in California Together (IMPACT) Stakeholder Committee hosted the day-long CA For ALL Ages and Abilities Day of Action conference in Sacramento. The in-person event gathered policymakers, caregivers, advocates and other stakeholders passionate about planning for an equitable and inclusive future for older adults and people with disabilities.

The Day of Action highlighted the progress in implementing the Master Plan for Aging (MPA), which serves as a 10-year blueprint for state government, local government, the private sector, and philanthropy to prepare and build for communities of all ages and abilities. During the conference, all seven of the MPA stakeholder advisory committees presented their top three subcommittee priorities for the next two years of implementation. The seven subcommittees are:

  • IMPACT Stakeholder Committee
  • CA Aging & Disability Research Partnership (ADRP)
  • Alzheimer’s Disease & Related Disorders Advisory Committee (ADRD)
  • California Commission on Aging (CCoA)
  • Disability & Aging Community Living Advisory Committee (DACLAC)
  • Equity in Aging Advisory Committee (EAAC)
  • CA Elder & Disability Justice Coordinating Council (EDJCC)

Many of the subcommittee priorities overlapped, including on issues of housing and homelessness, workforce development and capacity building, and the need for embedded equity throughout all aspects of planning and implementation. Subcommittee priorities also called for additional funding for services where the needs will grow with the changing demographics, including Adult Protective Services, Public Guardian and Public Conservator programs, and legal aid services.

CSAC will share materials and resources from this event once they become available. Moving forward, CSAC will continue to stay engaged in the implementation of the MPA as counties are a key partner in creating an equitable and accessible future for all Californians.
