Measuring Well-being of Older Adults

The National Council on Aging (NCOA) has developed a toolkit that provides community-based organizations guidance for how to use the Adult Well-Being Assessment (AWA). The AWA is a practical and easy-to-use method of measuring an older adult’s Quality of Life. The toolkit offers instructions for interpreting AWA results, and describes ways in which your organization can leverage the data to support research, engage funding partners, increase engagement of older adults, allocate resources, and more.
