The US Department of Health and Human recently released the Physical Activity Guidelines Midcourse Review: Implementation Strategies for Older Adults, and a CDC-funded network called PAPREN (Physical Activity Policy Research and Evaluation Network) is taking the opportunity to provide recommended resources that can support physical activity across the lifespan for communities working to become more age- and dementia friendly.
The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative thanks to Karin Valentine Goins of UMass Medical School for collecting these resources and to Central Mass. Regional Planning Commission for highlighting the work.
The following are a blend of recent and established resources:
- AARP programs
- AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities
- AARP Community Challenge
- AARP Walk Audit Tool Kit
- AARP Livable Communities
