The Winters Senior Commission on Aging is finalizing a questionnaire with the goal to survey older adults in Winters about the types of programs and services they are interested in.

At the Oct. 13 Winters Senior Commission meeting, Senior Commissioner Cheryl Sandoval said the questionnaire will help to identify and measure the senior community needs and things that will support the older adult community. The insight from the questionnaire will give the City of Winters staff and Senior Commission members guidance when it comes to creating programs for the upcoming Winters Senior Center.

The Winters Senior Commission hopes to have the questionnaire completed and ready to give out to the community at the Oct. 29 Community Expo hosted by the Winters District Chamber of Commerce.

The questionnaire is expected to be available in English and Spanish, as well as in a paper and a digital format.

Special meeting
Winters Senior Commission Chair Glenn Ripley proposed hosting a special meeting so Senior Commissioners would have a chance to confirm and finalize some of the goals the Senior Commission presented to City Council.

“We need to go through each one of these and say whether we want to adopt it or not,” Ripley said.

Two of the main goals discussed included finding out what the unmet needs in the local older adult community are and prioritizing them, and continuing work on creating a legislative platform so the Senior Commission can present legislative advocacy positions to the City Council regarding ongoing legislation.

The Winters Senior Commission will have a special meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 26 from 5:30–7 p.m. at the tables located outside of the Yolo Pharmacy (23 Main St., Winters).
