"The services that we're providing in the aging network in franklin county but i also think that you know only opens up the cross communication line so right now you know you may not know who you need to call it a certain agency if you start to create those relationships in the room then it's no longer a question of who do i call i have a relationship and now i can easily pick up the phone and make that connection that only helps the people that were all serving you know one of the things that's i'm very passionate about is the importance of not duplicating efforts that exist in the community and so how do we all do that warm hand off and ensure that you know someone that's coming in for your services going over here to receive a different service but not the same service because what can happen is a lot of confusion for the folks that were serving the last thing you know the the systems around them are often very confusing in general the last thing i want is for older adults in their caregivers to have experienced more confusion by duplication of efforts and so how do we come together and really start thinking about who's doing what and how do we support each other better as something i'm committed to doing so more formalized structure of meetings like we had on last week and i was amazed at how many people were going to be there nancy and i had talked a little bit about her putting this meeting together and when i walked in i mean cash there had to be fifty sixty agencies easily represented in probably one hundred people in the room that's a lot of that's a lot of services available to to our older adults and so as i said it's there's just so much that it's going on for for instance in our employment area there is duplication in that there are a lot of agencies who are helping people with employment but that doesn't necessarily mean we're all doing the same thing and and almost no one has that same niche that we do that completely open door they may look at at populations of older adults but there are restrictions in that and so we're we're we're lucky that we're able to do it without those restrictions which is real helpful so yeah and i think that's half the battle you know understanding who all is working on which aspect of the of the services we're providing in the community but that starts conversation right in relationship building and that's you know something i'm very passionate about is how we all strengthen our relationships across the aging network but i also think there's a larger story to be told you know how are we all coming together to do this so the population in that room in that meeting you know so many people show it up and they all share a common mission and that's to help people agent place there's a story to be told him franklin county and i'm so excited to be able to tell that story and bring us all together and share it you know and i think that's an important effort that we we can contribute to i'm sure you're learning curves like straight up until all this but we often get a pat line from employers saying no i need someone who can work on a computer when we say we're bringing them in a very dependable older adult worker well we provide over thousands or.

"And to to watch over their grandchildren so but but if you can't boy i talk about isolated from all of the fun stuff that's happening unit with even within their phantoms you brought up earlier about h friendly in the terminates that's a buzzword around here especially since we've been involved with h friendly columbus initiative here the past two or three years been one of the agencies helping out with that it's grown to include all of franklin county at has completed the planning research phase and now moving into implementation of the strat plan give us your thoughts on the h friendly project and the role you see the agency playing over the next few years yeah and i would say that katie white would be really excited that you said it's a buzzword and so that means she is doing her job while we're losing in the budget possible to katie's been with us and so we've talked about that and when when the kirwin institute originally did they study and i don't know if it was janitors somebody at franklin county told them will you're not looking at employment and they heard that from several people and that's how they called me everybody kept saying you've gotta talk to carol you gotta talk to carol but yes no eight now we've h friendly is is we're going strong why thinks that's the goal for it to become the buzzword and the buzz action so you know how do we all become more age friendly and i am as committed to that as the next person katie white and i work really closely together so in two thousand eighteen the franklin county board of commissioners approved to fund age friendly so it would expand from age friendly columbus to h friendly franklin county and i think that that makes us the one of the first counties to become age friendly and so that is that is very strategic and it's very exciting how we continue the good work that we're trying to do at a city level out you know throughout the county i think that age friendly you know it's a buzzword but it needs to be an action item that we're all thinking about i think about it on a regular basis you know every time i mountain about i'm thinking about that and i think you know having the ability right now on participating with some hilltop conversations so the research showed us that those that reside in hilltop didn't feel that they were connected to as many senior services so age friendly data told told that story and so now we are in conjunction with age friendly you know cage friendly's hosting these and i'm participating as much as i can to hear from those residents in hilltop to hear what their needs are to really get that you know person centered response to hear directly from those folks in those communities and our hope is to continuously hear from folks aging in our community to be able to apply programmatic responses to ensure that needs are being met and so how do we apply that across the county you know that's what we're working towards right now how do we take that lens that's been on the city and an applied across the county and all the different suburbs and all the different communities and support them to become age friendly themselves i i would encourage our listeners to pop back to the other podcast about h friendly because i think that what's so significant about that is that it brings in domains of of issues that are have not really been focused upon for the senior population when you hear seniors you hear healthcare housing transportation and food but there are other kinds of things so we were excited because it was the first time we saw anything that looked at it at employment for older adults as a real issue but also it's communications that whole communication section in the h friendly project so i go back to my earlier comment of well i've been doing work in all of the different agencies for so many years i thought i knew them all but you know every day i hear about something else well if we haven't heard about all of these different major cities and resources available how would the person in our community who is is elated may not have all of the most uptodate technology access how would they know yeah absolutely michelle we've talked about all those seniors services and the providers to issues came up at a meeting that we were all attending last week with you so that you had an opera unity.
