Connecticut Age Well Collaborative Releases Guide to Support Age and Dementia Friendly Efforts

Sep 20, 2023

Like the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative, the Connecticut Age Well Collaborative is a statewide, cross-sector network promoting and supporting inclusive age- and dementia friendly communities.

Their organization released a guide called “Practical Action for Aging, Dementia, and Disability Inclusivity” that follows a combined age- and dementia friendly framework that can be instructive for any community working to support healthy aging for all.

The guide is the latest installment in a line of resources to advance local age- and dementia friendly initiatives and recommendations are categorized under ten principles that are similar to what MHAC promotes in Massachusetts.

MHAC suggests this resource as a tool for any community or region that is considering their action-planning phase or may be at the beginning of the process and curious about what action items may entail.
