Age-Friendly Bowling Green
Creating an age-friendly community makes good sense.
The reasons are largely based on two key premises:
- Unlike most natural resources, older adults are a growing resource. Thus, population aging presents a set of opportunities, if handled well.
- An "age-friendly" community can benefit people of all ages and abilities.
To learn more: The Case for Age-Friendly CommunitiesThe Age-Friendly Bowling Green initiative seeks to make Bowling Green, KY a better place to grow old by promoting an "age-in-everything" lens across all aspects of city life. This hands-on community initiative asks the city's public agencies, businesses, cultural, educational and religious institutions, community groups, and individuals to consider how changes to policy and practice can create a city more inclusive of older adults and more sensitive to their needs.
Join your neighbors in conducting a baseline assessment of age-friendliness, developing an action plan and identifying indicators to monitor over time.
