AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities

Age-friendly or livable communities have walkable streets, housing and transportation options, access to key services and opportunities for residents to participate in community activities.

The network encourages states, cities, towns and counties to prepare for the rapid aging of the U.S. population by paying increased attention to the environmental, economic and social factors that influence the health and well-being of older adults.

By doing so, these communities are better equipped to become great places, and even lifelong homes, for people of all ages. (Go ahead and take a look at The Member List now. Then come back to this page.)
