What is an age-friendly community?
In an age-friendly community, policies, services and structures related to the physical and social environment are designed to support and enable older people to “age actively” – that is, to live in security, enjoy good health and continue to participate fully in society.
-World Health Organization
The WHO highlights 8 domains that cities and communities can address to better adapt their structures and services to the needs of older people:
Outdoor Spaces & Buildings
Civic Engagement & Employment
Respect & Social Inclusion
Communication & Information
Community & Health Services
You can be a part of making Maple Grove an age-friendly community!
