As our aging population grows, our region needs to work collaboratively to create communities where people of all ages and abilities can thrive. A regional framework is critical to guide efforts to meet the needs of older adults, including providing care and support, affordable housing, accessible transportation, and opportunities to work and volunteer. Engaging older adults is key, as our communities can benefit from their wealth of expertise and experience. Together we can create communities that allow people of all ages to be safe, healthy, and thrive.

Age Well San Diego
Age Well San Diego is the County of San Diego's age-friendly initiative, and a key component of the Aging Roadmap vision. At the direction of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors in 2016, the County applied to join the World Health Organization and AARP®‘s Network of Age-Friendly Communities and became a Dementia-Friendly America community partner. Age Well San Diego is a marriage of these two important global initiatives. In San Diego County, Age-Friendly + Dementia-Friendly = Age Well San Diego. Community-led teams are currently working on age-friendly projects in the following areas of the Aging Roadmap: Housing, Transportation, Health & Community Support, Social Participation, and Dementia.
