Age-Friendly Baltimore County

The Age-Friendly Baltimore County initiative focuses on improving the quality of living for all County residents that want to live, work, play and age in our County. Age-Friendly communities:

  • Enable people of all ages and abilities to actively participate in community activities 
  • Treat people with respect, regardless of age.
  • Make it easy for older people to stay connected to people that are important to them/the community
  • Helps people stay healthy and active regardless of their abilities and age
  • Provides appropriate support to those who can't look after themselves

Action Plan

Learn about the action plan created with the input of many dedicated community partners for improving the quality of living for all County residents that want to live, work, play and age in our County.

AARP Domains

The AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities is the United States affiliate of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Age-Friendly Cities and Communities Program, an international effort to help cities prepare for rapid population aging and the parallel trend of urbanization. There are eight domains that AARP, based on the WHO’s work, suggest we work on:

  1. Outdoor spaces
  2. Transportation
  3. Housing
  4. Social participation
  5. Respect and social inclusion
  6. Civic participation and employment
  7. Communications and information
  8. Community and health services

Get Involved

We will be hosting listening sessions, town hall meetings and focus groups in order to hear from all our communities in the County.
