Steps to Building Age-Friendly Allegany County
Ardent Solutions is excited to be leading the charge and working with partners from across Allegany County to jumpstart our Age-Friendly Communities Initiative. Collaborating with local providers and leaders, Age-Friendly Allegany County is committed to creating an environment that is more livable for people of all ages, especially older adults.
Age-Friendly Allegany County completed its Community Needs Assessment. Learn more about our survey results and how it is being used to inform our 3-year action plan (2021-2023) by clicking the box below.
AARP adopted the initiative into their organization in 2012 and now leads the United States network of age-friendly communities. This year, in 2020, Allegany County is joining over 500 communities in the U.S. to develop this initiative in our communities by creating a partnership across all sectors of our county including government and municipalities, school districts, churches, non profit organizations, local businesses, community members, and many more.
Ardent Solutions has a long standing relationship with many organizations and community members throughout Allegany County and thus took the lead on developing this initiative, in partnership with the Allegany County Office of the Aging. However, the efforts to create a well-designed, supportive, and livable community for all will take the work of many hands!
Together we can build an even stronger Allegany County by bringing together our lived experiences, thoughts and ideas, and energy to develop new ways of making our community the best place to “grow up and grow old”!
