AARP Mississippi invites Jackson residents to raise their voices on issues that are important to them. The Jackson Age-Friendly survey is an opportunity to speak up on issues that affect Jackson residents of all ages.
The city of Jackson recently signed on as a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. The network helps participating communities become great places for people of all ages by adopting features such as safe, walkable streets; better housing and transportation options; access to key services; and opportunities for residents to participate in civic and community activities.

The AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities targets improvements in eight domains that influence the health and quality of life for all as we age. Communities participating in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities commit to improving their livability through an assessment of needs, development of an action plan, implementation of new projects and programs, and ongoing assessment – all with the involvement of older residents.
The eight areas of focus for the age-friendly process are:
- Outdoor spaces and buildings
- Social participation
- Respect and social inclusion
- Civic participation and employment
- Communication and information
- Community support and health services
Well-designed, livable communities promote wellbeing, sustain economic growth, and make for happier, healthier residents of all ages. To complete the survey, click here.
