Age-Friendly Program Description

Hanover Age-Friendly Advisory Committee has been functioning since June 2017. It is led by a municipal advisory committee. An action plan has been created from their Needs Assessment report. They have implemented an Age-Friendly Speaker Series from November 2017 to March 2018 and implemented household delivery of their Senior Star newsletter and Senior Resource Guide. An inventory of older adult services and programs that exist in Hanover has been created and is updated regularly. Current initiatives include completion of the Walkability Assessment, an Active Aging Expos and the development of an age-friendly business checklist.
