What is an Age-Friendly Community?
The Age-Friendly community movement has emerged in recent years in an effort to describe ways in which communities and cities may create environments that support their aging populations and promote quality of life, independence, wellness, and active participation throughout the life course.
Eight domains are used to identify features of communities that promote active, involved aging and quality of life. They address aspects of community infrastructure, the social environment, and features of the built environment.
  • Outdoor Spaces and Buildings
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Communication and Information
  • Community Support and Health Services
  • Social Participation
  • Respect and Social Inclusion
  • Civic Engagement and Employment
