Age Friendly

Age-Friendly Teulon was formed in 2011 and has completed many projects to help the citizens lead active and healthy lifestyle from creating wheelchair parking on Main Street to co-partnering in a Police Academy for older adults.
 
Our Initiative is to support residents in leading active, socially engaged independent lives that contribute to healthy aging and to encourage an accessible community, provide opportunities for healthy choices and safe
neighborhoods for all ages.
 
There are eight key areas of community life in which communities can become more age-friendly.
These areas are:
  • TRANSPORTATION
  • OUTDOOR SPACES & BUILDINGS
  • HOUSING
  • RESPECT & SOCIAL INCLUSION
  • SOCIAL PARTICIPATION
  • COMMUNITY & INFORMATION
  • CIVIC PARTICIPATION
  • EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
  • COMMUNITY SUPPORT & HEALTH SERVICES
