How age friendly is my community?
The things that make somewhere a good place to live and work can change as we get older.
Many of us remain active into older age, while some of us experience isolation, loneliness, money worries or poor
health. Poor neighbourhood design and / or a lack of services can lead to older people being cut off within communities. It is vital that the needs of older people are considered to ensure we all have the opportunity to achieve the best health, wellbeing and quality of life that we are able.
