Senator Liz Krueger’s 2022 Virtual Roundtable for Boomers and Seniors
“Aging in Place: Living Well in the Community”
Session VIII: Reframing Aging: Building an Age Friendly City
Thursday, May 19th, from 10 am – 11:30 am
The majority of older people want to age in place, which is possible with the right support and planning. This multi-part roundtable series will bring together experts and thought leaders to help us understand some of the vital components needed to age well in the community.
If we want the resources we need to age well in the community, we must reframe the way we think and talk about getting older. When we view aging in a more positive frame, it becomes easier to take action to change things in our community to support older adults. Learn about how you can work to make your neighborhood more age friendly, and find out about key policies in New York City that still need to be addressed to support us as we age.
