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.
