City of Lafayette Age-Friendly Community Kickoff Event
The City of Lafayette Senior Services Commission invites you to its AARP/World Health Organization
Age-Friendly Community Initiative kickoff. The AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities is an affiliate of
the World Health Organization’s Age-Friendly Cities and Communities program. As many of us know, with the
population aging and people staying healthy and active longer, communities such as ours must adapt to these
changes. Well-designed, livable communities promote health, sustain economic growth, and make for happier,
healthier residents of all ages.
The Eight Domains of Livability that form the backbone of the initiative are Outdoor Spaces and Buildings;
Transportation; Housing; Social Participation; Respect and Social Inclusion; Civic Participation and Employment;
Communication and Information; and Community and Health Services. Each of these domains will be discussed
at the meeting and focus groups for each will be held at a later date.
Come learn more about the Age-Friendly Initiative and contribute by sharing your answers to these initial questions:
• What do you love about this community?
• What are our current age-friendly needs?
• What age-friendly needs do you foresee for the future?
Door prizes available and refreshments will be served so do join us!
