Aging at Home-Wayne Survey   UPDATE: New Survey

The “Aging At Home” committee of Wayne surveyed more than 100 of Wayne’s elders. We learned more about what people in town need. Now we are beginning projects designed to help elderly Wayners and people who have disabilities meet those needs so they can stay in Wayne as they age. We would like your input and/or your help. This survey is for ALL members of the Wayne community. We want to match what people in Wayne want to do for others with what is needed.

Here is the NEW link if you would like to take the survey on line:
