Older Adult Health

Older Adult Health collaborates with County departments and community partners to assess needs, identify strategies and implement programs to support all people to age how and where they choose. The Chief Geriatric Officer works closely with San Diego County Aging and Independence Services to achieve San Diego’s Age Well Vision, which encompasses San Diego’s Age-Friendly and Dementia-Friendly Community initiatives, and strives for countywide Age-Friendly Health System transformation in which every older adult receives evidence-based care geared towards what matters most to the older adult and their family.
