Meriden’s Commission on Aging and Disabilities Launches Resident Survey
The survey is being conducted to better understand local priorities and concerns regarding services available to senior citizens and persons with disabilities. The survey will gather responses from residents in English and Spanish that will measure resident satisfaction regarding the city’s response to the needs of seniors and persons with disabilities, while also identifying key concerns residents want the city to address.
The survey will appear to residents through the use of digital ads in various locations such as social media platforms. Hard copies will be made available at the Meriden Senior Center, and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and assist individuals with filling them out. In addition, residents can find and respond to the survey by CLICKING HERE.
