SeniorsPlus, the designated Agency on Aging for Western Maine, seeks Farmington-area residents ages 21 and over to participate in a focus group to be held Wednesday, January 18 at the office of SeniorsPlus, 218 Fairbanks Road in Farmington. Participants have a choice of attending a 2 pm or 3 pm focus group; each focus group meeting will take approximately 60 minutes.
Interested parties should contact SeniorsPlus at 1-800-427-1241. Ten individuals will be selected for each group. Pre-registration and confirmation with SeniorsPlus is required for participation. Refreshments will be served at the meetings and each participant will receive a Hannaford $5 gift card.
As part of a Thriving in Place grant from MeHAF, SeniorsPlus will be surveying the focus group. The purpose is to gauge public opinion, perceptions, and suggestions surrounding transportation issues for seniors and adults with disabilities in the Farmington area. Public feedback is important in developing policies and program development. This focus group will be a structured small group discussion led by a facilitator. Participants will respond to pre-established questions to elicit their perspectives, insights, and opinions.
