Master Plan For Aging
Governor Newsom signed an executive order in June 2019 that calls for the Secretary of the Health and Human Services (HHS) Agency to convene a cabinet-level Workgroup for Aging to advise the Secretary in developing and issuing the Master Plan. The order also directs HHS to convene a Master Plan for Aging Stakeholder Advisory Committee, which will include a Research Subcommittee and a Long-Term Care Subcommittee with an interest in building an age-friendly California.
Together We EngAGE
The California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) as part of their oversight of the Master Plan For Aging has added a feature on their website entitled “Together We EngAGE” that encourages Californians to share their ideas and suggestions on how we can collectively build an age-friendly California.
