Augusta, Georgia is now recognized as an AARP Age-Friendly Community.
An Age-Friendly Community is designed to establish an inclusive and accessible environment that encourages active and healthy aging. It also proactively focuses on those elements of communities that enhance independent living with a goal of having older citizens take a more active role in their communities.
The Age-Friendly Communities program provides an excellent opportunity to broaden support from other agencies and organizations for much of the work that is currently underway in the Augusta area. -AARP.org
