Age-Friendly Community Initiative's Programs, Activities, and Accomplishments:
Communication and Information
Along with other print and digital resources, we publish a weekly column in our local newspaper, which includes information about local resources, as well as pertinent resources from national publications.
With the local high school, we have a collaborative Handy Neighbor Program which provides simple household chores to people over 60.
We hire a licensed Occupational Therapist to perform Home Safety Assessments.
Adaptive tool kit allows people to learn about and try devices to make everyday life a little easier.
Transportation (including promotion of active transportation)
Our singular and signature program is the N2N (Neighbor to Neighbor) Rides program, which serves all 6 of our towns, transporting clients to a wide variety of commitments and activities within the region.
