 Assessing Communication and Information Needs of

Community Dwelling Older Adults in Tompkins County

Amy Johnstone, Natalie Lang, Danielle O’Donnell and Kelly Pettigrew, graduate students of the occupational therapy program at Ithaca College invite you to participate in this research study. The title of the study is Assessing Communication and Information Needs of Community Dwelling Older Adults in Tompkins County. The purpose of the study is to identify how older adults (60+) within Tompkins County obtain information and news about the community. The results of this research will be used to provide the Ithaca Area Agency on Aging with information regarding barriers that prevent elders from receiving area information and communicating with others in the community. This information will aid in transforming Ithaca into an age friendly community. The results of this study may be published in scientific research journals and/or presented at professional conferences, however your identity will remain anonymous.
