The type of community you live in can also impact your ability to live independently.
Age-friendly communities encourage seniors and other residents to stay active and engaged, and make it easy to do so with features such as well-maintained sidewalks and benches, accessible buildings, and good public transportation.
Age-friendly communities also provide seniors with access to essential supports and services such as shopping, health care providers and recreational activities.
- How age-friendly is my community?
- What supports and services does my community offer to meet my needs and help me maintain my independence as I age?
- Do I need to consider moving to a community with more services?
- Am I close to the supports and services that I need now and may need in the future?
- What assistance may I be eligible for from governments or helping agencies?
