How do we make Fremont an Age Friendly Community?

If you are a man age 50 or over and are willing to make a difference in your community, your opinion is highly valued and can really help in current efforts.  The focus group will be asked to share their ideas about:

  • Transportation
  • Outdoor Spaces
  • Civic Participation
  • Employment
  • Housing
  • Social Participation
  • Respect & Social Inclusion Communication &Information
  • Health & Wellness
  • Dementia-Specific Support

A Focus Group is scheduled to meet on  Monday, February 27, 2017, 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Niles Discovery Church, 36600 Niles Blvd, Fremont, CA 94536

Participants will be served a light dinner at 6:30 followed by structured conversation.  At the end of the evening there will be a drawing for two door prizes.

The group is limited to 10 participants so please register as soon as possible.  Contact:
            Iris Nicholson at or  (510) 789-3512 or
Amy Gunnarson at or (301) 693-6397

The World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age Friendly Cities is gaining momentum internationally and in the United States. This Network provides Cities a structure to assess what is currently going well and what could be changed in their city to best support older residents. The idea is if a city is age-friendly then it is livable for all ages.

The first step is to ask residents how Fremont can support them to age well. We are looking for Fremont residents, over the age of 50. The conversation will take about two hours and comments will be collected and used to help write an Action Plan for Age-Friendly Fremont.
