Aging & Disability Friendly SF Workgroup
CREATING AN AGE AND DISABILITY FRIENDLY SAN FRANCISCO
To ensure that San Francisco is inclusive, diverse, and safe for all people, regardless of age or ability, so they are able to remain within the community of their choice as they age. Locally, nationally, and globally, populations are aging at increasing rates and San Francisco is no exception. Currently one in five San Franciscans is 60 or older, these numbers are expected to increase as the Baby Boomers retire. Additionally, 4% or more than 35,000 San Franciscans are adults (18 to 59 years) with a disability.
Through the work of the Aging and Disability Friendly SF Workgroup, San Francisco joined the World Health Organization Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and AARP Livable Communities in 2014. We’re one of the first in California to join this global movement. To move this concept forward, we must create, implement, and evaluate an Age- and Disability-Friendly Plan for San Francisco that includes a baseline assessment and recommendations.
The LTCCC has created a 27 member Age and Disability Friendly Task Force to undertake this effort. For that reason,
THE ADF-SF WORK GROUP IS ON HIATUS.
