Among the nation’s communities and local leaders on the frontlines of the global coronavirus pandemic are the more than 450 towns, cities, counties and states enrolled in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities.
Local Leaders, Local Solutions
COURTESY LIFELONG MONTCLAIR
Several of the network’s member communities have told us how they’re responding to the unprecedented challenges brought on by the pandemic, and how they’re working to meet the needs of older adults. By sharing their stories, community leaders, first responders, volunteers and residents of all ages can learn from — and be inspired by — the strategies, struggles and solutions.
This page contains links to examples from some of the communities in the AARP age-friendly network.
Meanwhile, AARP Livable Communities and the National League of Cities are working together to document the strategies and solutions all types of communities are implementing to keep their most at-risk residents safe during the global coronavirus pandemic.
