Age-Friendly Communities

The City of Henderson is excited to announce that the Age Friendly Henderson Action Plan was accepted by City Council on January 16, 2018.  The Plan is a direct result of Henderson’s collaboration with the AARP and their Age Friendly Communities Initiative.  The City spent two years surveying our residents and convening a stakeholder group in order to draft goals and strategies to continue to make Henderson best city for seniors and residents of all ages! The City is now committed to implementing the 44 strategies contained in the plan which can be found here: Age-Friendly Henderson Action Plan.

According to AARP, an Age-Friendly Community is a community that is safe and secure, has affordable and appropriate housing and transportation options, and has supportive community features and services. Once in place, those resources enhance personal independence; allow residents to age in place; and foster residents’ engagement in the community’s civic, economic, and social life.
