Age-Friendly Maple Grove

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
Social Participation
Civic Engagement & Employment
Respect & Social Inclusion
Communication & Information
Community & Health Services

 You can be a part of making Maple Grove an age-friendly community!
