It’s been a decade since Macon-Bibb County became the nation’s first community designated “age friendly” in AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. Since then, 99 more cities, counties and communities in the Peach State have joined, pledging to become places that are welcoming and livable for people of all ages.
The 16 counties represented by the Commission join over 600 other communities across the nation that have committed to preparing for an aging population.
Amenities for older adults, particularly access to transportation, allow older Georgians to age in place at home and maintain independence.
