Creating an Age-Friendly State

Conversations with GIA

For the first time, leaders in NY and MA are putting plans in place with concrete strategies to make their states age-friendly. As they start this journey to create better places to grow up and grow old, NY and MA are not starting from scratch. They are leveraging existing community resources, identifying opportunities for new investments, building and/or strengthening coalitions or rethinking existing work. Grantmakers investing in age-friendly work or thinking about it can learn from these experiences. What does it mean to be an age-friendly state? What does it take to make cities, towns and states relevant and responsive to older people. Who should be included in the process, including those who represent diverse communities? How do communities define age-friendly, and where do dementia-friendly initiatives fit? Panelists: Robin Lipson serves as Chief of Staff and Chief Strategy Officer for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs; Nora Moreno Cargie is Vice President of Corporate Citizenship for Tufts Health Plan and President of Tufts Health Plan Foundation; Nora OBrien-Suric is President of the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York. Thank you to The John A. Hartford Foundation for supporting our Conversations with GIA series. Webinar date: September 13, 2018.

 

Help us pursue our mission and strengthen grantmaking to support the needs and potential of older people.
