Age Friendly Cities
Age Friendly Cities

Age-friendly communities are inclusive and considerate of the perspectives of all residents, of all ages, and all persuasions. 

Age-friendly communities encourage and benefit from diverse citizen engagement by including residents in a process to identify the community’s needs and develop and implement an action plan to address those needs.

Hear how the City of Burlingame is working on ways to engage and help seniors age in place in our city.   

Rosy Earnest is the Associate Director at the Center for Age Friendly Excellence
