Creating Aging-Friendly Communities

Together making our communities more aging-friendly

The Creating Aging-Friendly Communities online conference was held February/March 2008 and brought together top experts in aging and community development with individuals and organizations working to make their communities more aging-friendly.

This site makes many of these presentations available to the public, for free. There are nearly 30 presentations now available that we invite you to view by clicking on the presentation title.

Cities and towns throughout the United States are aging rapidly, with the senior population due to double in the next 25 years; yet, most communities are ill-prepared. Creating Aging-Friendly Communities is a unique online resource focusing on proven strategies for helping communities respond effectively to the aging of their populations.
