Supporting Aging with Choices
The Supporting Aging with Choices Vision Council is working to identify gaps in services and prioritize needs for the aging population. In 2011, the council held a forum and conducted a survey to verify needs, develop an action plan and engage constituents in supporting actions. A priority has been placed on making sure citizens of Kingsport are aware of and have easy access to information, education, and counseling about senior services and programs.

“Our program is extremely significant to our clients because they get to maintain the dignity of their lives, in their place of choice, their own homes. If you ask anybody where they would like to go, they will say their own home.” – Pat Griggs, Program Director.
