Central Ohio’s 65+ population is expected to double in the next 35 years. This poses a great opportunity for the region to ensure that as people age and their abilities change, Columbus is able to provide easy access to services, amenities, and opportunities.
Working within the World Health Organization and AARP Livable Communities guidelines, Age-Friendly Columbus will work toward improvements in 8 focus areas, or domains.
Over the course of 2 years, this project will assess the age-friendliness of Columbus and create a 3-year city-wide action plan of improvement.
