Commonwealth Releases Nation-Leading Three-Year Progress Report on Statewide Age-and Dementia Friendly Action Plan

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is pleased to release the third annual progress report for ReiMAgine Aging, the Age-Friendly Massachusetts Action Plan, which serves as the state’s multi-year plan to make the Commonwealth more age- and dementia-friendly. The report encompasses the work of 2021, during which communities continued to demonstrate resilience, ingenuity, and the ability to rapidly adapt.

This year’s progress report details efforts made by communities and organizations to make the places we live, work, and play better places to grow up and grow old. In 2021, people and partners connected in new ways to make our communities, programs, systems, and policies more age- and dementia-friendly.

This report demonstrates the strong foundation of the movement and underscores how the goals and values of ReiMAgine Aging continue to reach more people, partners, and sectors. The report also looks ahead and outlines lessons learned and priorities to continue the momentum of this work.

The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative is a main supporter and partner on the age-and dementia friendly action plan, and is accountable for implementation of many of its goals and items.
