And the Survey Says? Take the Davie County Aging Plan Survey

Davie County is seeking input to plan for the future of aging in our county.  Your input, combined with the responses from other Davie County residents, will guide the development of our 2019-2024 Master Aging Plan. We want to learn about what it takes to age well in Davie County. We are asking questions about two main focuses: 1) What concerns you most about aging? and 2) How well is Davie doing now to address important issues regarding aging?  Please follow this link to take the survey.  Thank you for your input.
