What does it mean to be an Age-Friendly community?

‘Age-friendly’ is the idea of making structures and services in a community more accessible and inclusive for seniors in the area with varying needs and capacities.

This means taking a look at how we build infrastructure, the way we get around, and even the way we shop for goods and services.

Key Features of an age-friendly community

An age-friendly community may include features such as:

  • well-situated public benches
  • clean, secure, and accessible public toilets
  • maintained and well-lit sidewalks
  • fully accessible public buildings
  • housing integrated in the community that accommodates changing needs and abilities as people grow older
  • friendly, personalized service and information instead of automated answering services
  • public and commercials services and stores in neighbourhoods close to where people live

Information was obtained from the Government of Alberta website.

Age-Friendly Community Committee

The Age-Friendly Community Committee acts as a catalyst for community collaboration, with the objective of making Innisfail more age-friendly by welcoming input from the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Additionally, it will promote the concept of multi-generational collaboration throughout the community.

The committee consists of one councillor, four community business members, and two community members at large. Members of this committee serve a three-year term.  This committee is also supported by the Age-Friendly Facilitator.
