10 and 50

Ten is the number of domains Age-Friendly DC is considering in order to make the District of Columbia an eminently livable place for everyone and especially those over age 50.   The domains are universal:
  1. Outdoor spaces and buildings
  2. Transportation
  3. Housing
  4. Social participation
  5. Respect and social inclusion
  6. Civic participation and employment
  7. Communication and information
  8. Community support and health services
  9. Emergency preparedness and response
  10. Elder abuse, neglect, and fraud

You can have a say about these 10 domains and more at the Age-Friendly DC Forum September 21.   All District residents are encouraged to attend.   RSVP for the Forum today online or by calling (202) 724-5622.

If you are not able to attend but have something to say about making the District of Columbia a place that allows persons of all ages and abilities to live and thrive, you can share your thoughts here in this online form.
