Adult Well-Being Assessment

Adults age 60 and older and living in Baltimore County are invited to complete a brief online survey called the Adult Well-Being Assessment (AWA). The AWA was developed by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) as part of the 100 Million Healthier Lives Project. Baltimore County is proud to be the first county in the country partnering with NCOA to use the AWA to assess the impact of senior centers on older adults’ quality of life. The assessment asks individuals to indicate how they feel about their quality of life as well as their opinions on their financial situation, physical health, mental health, social and emotional support, whether they led a purposeful and meaningful life and how often they feel lonely or isolated. For more information about the Adult Well-Being Assessment, email Jill Hall at jphall@baltimorecountymd.gov.

If you are a member of a Baltimore County Senior Center, you will have an opportunity to complete this assessment when you register at your senior center.
