Age-Friendly Community Survey
Just how age-friendly is Urbana-Champaign?
A dedicated group of community leaders are spearheading the effort to enter the Age-Friendly community network with the goals of making Champaign-Urbana more livable for community members across the lifespan.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a set of guidelines for communities who wish to seek “Age-Friendly” status and has designated AARP as their representative of this effort in the United States. Together they have institutionalized a process to help communities prepare for upcoming demographic shifts with regard to older adults. This process involves organizing community stakeholders to evaluate, plan, and implement strategies to improve the lives of older adults in our community.
To that end, we are seeking the voices and opinions of community members aged 50 and older to better understand both our strengths and weaknesses as a place to grow older.
To make your voice heard, please participate in our survey:
