Age-Friendly Berkeley in the local news
“The Berkeley Commission on Aging gathered for an “Age Friendly Forum” on Wednesday to hear the results of a communitywide survey and to voice its opinions about how a changing city could effectively include its elderly residents.”
“Led by a partnership between Ashby Village, the city of Berkeley, the Center for Independent Living and Lifelong Medical Care, Berkeley recently completed an initial needs assessment, applied for and was designated an Age Friendly City by WHO (the World Health Organization) and AARP.
With this designation, we will be producing a 3 to 5-year action plan by November 2018 that addresses priorities to make Berkeley more aging friendly. “
