As baby-boomers retire and make up a vast portion of small community constituencies, their needs and interests are of increasing relevance to local government and community leaders. Additionally, communities need to prepare for upcoming demographic shifts with regard to older adults. The World Health Organization (WHO), in partnership with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), has developed a set of guidelines for communities who wish to seek “Age-Friendly” status. This process involves organizing community stakeholders to evaluate, plan, and implement strategies to improve the lives of older adults in their community.
Join us for a free webinar, Age-Friendly Initiatives: Making Communities Livable for All Ages, on Thursday, June 14, 2018, from Noon to 1PM., where our speakers give us insight on: (1) how communities can prepare for upcoming demographic shifts with regard to older adults, and (2) how one aspect of the age-friendly approach focuses on the socio-emotional, with particular emphasis on noticing tell-tale signs of senior bullying.
