Staff Study: Aging of New York State's Population (Follow-Up Review)

In our prior report 97-D-14, we reviewed New York State's long-range plans for serving its elderly citizens and found that, while the Office for the Aging and other State agencies were addressing the needs of the growing elderly population, the State's overall planning and service delivery efforts were somewhat fragmented. We noted that these efforts would be improved if they were coordinated by the Office for the Aging, and identified the need for effective long-range planning in the areas of health care, nutrition, housing, transportation and economic security. In our follow-up review, we found that the issues raised in our prior report were being addressed by the Office for the Aging.
