The Age Friendly York project encourages everyone to get involved and ensures everyone’s voice counts. We welcome your comments and feedback on this project.
We've identified the following areas of focus ('domains') in our goal of achieving an Age Friendly York:
Age friendly Communities
By 2040, the Centre for Ageing Better wants more people in later life to:
- be in good health
- be financially secure
- have social connections
- feel their lives are meaningful and purposeful
Ageing and our local population
Dementia and Age Friendly York
Dementia is becoming an increasingly important consideration for older people.
Through our Ageing Well Partnership, we've agreed to use a 'dementia friendly' approach when considering our key focus areas.
The Ageing Well Partnership forms part of our Health and Wellbeing Board.
Age Friendly York Project Plan
- outlines how the project will progress
- ensures we maintain progress
We discuss our project plan at each Ageing Well Partnership meeting.
Getting out and about: baseline assessment
The World Health Organisation requires us to produce a 'baseline assessment', which gives us an opportunity to set out what we currently provide and what you, the residents, think of the quality of what we offer.
Our Getting out and about baseline assessment relates to getting out and about in York.
Getting out and about: consultations
