This Guide was designed for use by anyone who wants to put their ideas and vision for a more age-friendly community into action. These actions can focus on one or many different sectors in the community—health and social services, parks and recreation, policing services and businesses—to incorporate age-friendly approaches into design, policy and services. The Guide shows you how to:

  • assess the age-friendliness of your community
  • get people involved
  • set goals
  • create a plan
  • carry out the plan
  • assess whether you have accomplished the goals in your plan
  • share the results with others
