MV Older adult 2020 Survey Results

Survey Background and Objectives

With our Older Adult population rapidly increasing here on the Island and with 1 in 3 residents 65+, the need for credible and current data on the "state-of-the-Island" Older Adult perspective has become increasingly important. The last survey conducted by HAMV occurred in 2015. HAMV, working with the Boston University's MetroBridge program, undertook an island-wide survey with all Older Adults 60+, in late 2020. The objective was to make available to any organization, government, or individual on our Island, a comprehensive understanding of how Older Adults spend their days, their volunteer contribution, service/support needs, transportation and infrastructure behaviors/preferences/needs, technology usage, and impact of COVID to support  planning, priority setting and collaboration across the island with those who serve this population.
