Jan 10, 2018

As many publications do, the Boston Globe interviewed experts who could reveal some insight on what 2018 might bring for the business community regionally and nationally.

Alongside healthcare, technology and real estate predictions, the Globe story singled out the Age-Friendly Communities movement as a major trend to keep an eye on. The article makes note of how cities and towns from all across the state are taking part in the movement that focuses on improving quality of life and community livability for not only older adults, but people of all ages.

Len Fishman, director of the Gerontology Institute at the University of Massachusetts Boston and an member of the Healthy Aging Collaborative was quoted as saying, “We want to have a very wide door so many people can come through,” in terms of supporting communities becoming Age-Friendly.
