Age-friendly communities strive to better meet the needs of their older residents by considering the environmental, economic, and social factors that influence the health and well-being of older adults. These programs seek to allow older adults to stay in their communities and “age in place.”
At this workshop, sponsored by Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG), LifePath, and MA Healthy Aging Collaborative, participants will learn the basics of the age-friendly model, learn from other areas who have been designated as age-friendly, and discuss how an age-friendly project might benefit their communities. Professionals; members of boards of health, councils on aging, and selectboards; other municipal and elected officials; and concerned residents are welcome. Presenters include James Fuccione, Senior Director, MA Healthy Aging Collaborative; Lisa White, RN, FRCOG; and Lynne Feldman, Director of Community Services, LifePath.
