The Town of Hanover has partnered with the Gerontology Institute at the University of Massachusetts Boston to conduct a needs assessment of the experiences, interests, and long-term needs of residents aged 55 and over. The study, led by the Council on Aging (COA) and supported by the Town of Hanover, will inform plans to build programs and policies that support Hanover’s growing population of older adults.
The linked survey is one piece in the assessment process which includes qualitative and quantitative methods of study. By completing the survey, you have the opportunity to have your voice heard about living in Hanover. Your heartfelt feedback is appreciated and essential for the Town to effectively respond to the community’s needs. Your responses to the survey are anonymous.
Together, we will maintain Hanover as a strong, vibrant community for people of all ages.
