Our philosophy on making a difference to and providing value to local communities nationwide is on display in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities.

AARP Indiana is breaking down what it means to be an Age-Friendly community and how residents can make it happen during a two-part event called The State of Age-Friendly.

Part one of the event – What is an Age-Friendly Community? – will teach Hoosiers the basics about the program and will include perspective from people who helped Fishers become the first Indiana city to join the network.

Part two of the event – Hoosier Age-Friendly Communities – will be a more-detailed look at various steps of the Age-Friendly program and process.

Both events will be streamed live on Facebook and attendees will be able to ask questions in real time.

“This is the perfect opportunity for local government officials, community planners, engaged citizens, and other stakeholders to make an indelible impact on the places that they live,” Addison Pollock, AARP Indiana director of community engagement, said. “We hope to grow the network in 2022, and attending is a great first step to take to get involved.”
