Age Friendly Communities Model
The Age Friendly Communities Model was developed by the World Health Organisation in 2007 after working with groups in 33 cities who were asked to identify advantages and barriers they experience in eight areas of city living including community and health services. The Model encourages active ageing by optimising opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance people's quality of life. In practical terms, an age friendly city/community adapts its structures and services to be accessible and inclusive of older people with varying needs and capacities.
