Help Us Become More Age-Friendly

The City of Roseville has joined the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Network of Age Friendly Cities. The Network was established to foster the exchange of experience and mutual learning between cities worldwide.

The main goals of the Network are to:
• Connect cities that share the commitment of becoming age-friendly;
• Facilitate exchange of information and best practices;
• Provide technical support and training
• Ensure that interventions taken to improve the lives of older people are appropriate, sustainable and cost-effective.

The Senior Commission is currently in the planning stage which includes the following steps:
• Establishment of mechanisms to involve older people throughout the Age-Friendly City cycle.
• Get a baseline assessment of the age-friendliness of the city.
• Development of a 3-year city wide plan of action based on assessment findings.
• Identification of indicators to monitor progress.

To gather more information the Senior Commission along with City staff will be conducting two (2) Focus Groups. To join one of the Focus Groups, attendees should be age 60 and above and willing to give their perspective on age friendly topics that will be addresses. The information gathered will assist in the development of the City’s baseline findings to improve the age-friendliness of the city.
