It’s been five years since the establishment of the Governor’s Council to Address Aging. The Council has been a catalyst in moving Massachusetts forward as an age-friendly state and creating a vision for what it means to grow older in the community of one’s choice.
The work is built on a strong foundation of innovative programs, policies, and services in collaboration with partners and stakeholders from the public, not-for-profit, and private sectors. While much progress has been made, the work to become an age-friendly state endures.
The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative continues to advance the Council’s vision through promoting and supporting inclusive age- and dementia friendly communities, regions and a statewide initiative in “ReiMAgine Aging.”
