Made possible by


This Compendium of Community Aging Initiatives for the first time documents in a single place the various

efforts across the country to help communities become more ―aging friendly.‖ Included in the Compendium are brief summaries of 121 community aging initiatives, representing respondents to surveys sent to nearly 300 organizations identified through online searches.

The idea for this Compendium was developed at a meeting of leaders of community aging initiatives at the ASA/NCOA ―Aging in America‖ Conference in Las Vegas in March, 2009. The meeting attendees felt that such an effort was imperative at this time, in part to ―shorten the learning curve‖ by synthesizing current knowledge regarding proven strategies for overcoming common challenges, and equally importantly to facilitate policy development, research, and advocacy.

UC Berkeley's Center for the Advanced Study of Aging Services (Center) was asked to take the leadership role in this effort, based in part on our previous success in hosting the ―Creating Aging-Friendly Communities‖ online conference, in collaboration with Community Strengths, which attracted more than 750 participants representing 47 states and 17 countries.

While we have strived for accuracy and to include as many initiatives as possible, we recognize that the information provided here is of necessity incomplete. We regret any omissions, and trust that this will be but the first of many such efforts to document the innovative efforts of communities throughout the country to become better places to live and to age.

The Center would like to express its sincere appreciation to all those who participated in this project, and especially to MetLife Foundation and the Eugene and Rose Kleiner Family Foundation for their generous support, without which this Compendium would not have been possible. I also would like to acknowledge the excellent contributions of research assistants Amanda Lehning, Jonathan Rogers, Vivian Chan, Megan Chen, Charis Stiles, and Rebecca Kleinman.

Compendium of Community Aging Initiatives 50+ Dialogues

Geographic Area Served: Lake Oswego, Oregon Description: In September 2005, the City retained Lincoln Crow Strategic Communications to conduct a community-wide assessment to determine the needs of residents age 50 and over. The goals of this assessment were to: (1) Identify the issues, concerns, and needs of Lake Oswego‘s 50+ population, including understanding the desires, expectations, and needs of people nearing or entering retirement age; (2) Explore factors that play a role in aging successfully; (3) Probe the 50+ population‘s awareness of and satisfaction with existing services and programs, as well as identify gaps in service; (4) Evaluate the stability of future funding and the potential impact on future social service delivery at the Adult Community Center; and (5) Determine the city‘s role in meeting current and future needs.

Accomplishments: Advocacy for community based projects, Neighbor Helping Neighbor Community based clean up, transportation/shuttle recommendations, traffic study, and educational panel.

Website: www.ci.oswego.or.us/acc Compendium of Community Aging Initiatives AARP Louisiana’s Livable Community Initiative Geographic Area Served: Hollygrove neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana Lead Agency: AARP Louisiana Larger Initiative: AARP Description: AARP Louisiana supports both a state-wide Livable Communities Council and a locally based elder-friendly community initiative in the Hollygrove neighborhood of New Orleans. The Council is a group of professionals and volunteers from across Louisiana committed to making Louisiana a place where people of all ages and abilities can grow old. The Hollygrove Livable Communities Project is a partnership of 40 organizations committed to supporting the Hollygrove neighborhood in its desire to rebuild an elder-friendly community after significant devastation brought by the storms of 2005.

Accomplishments: The Livable Communities Council successfully advocated for and passed a resolution mandating the creation of a Complete Streets Workgroup to ensure that all roads are designed or retrofitted in a way that accommodates all users. The Council will play a major leadership role with the Workgroup and then serve as a watchdog group to ensure recommendations are implemented. Currently, the council is working on developing a national transportation conference that will focus on involving older adults in transportation planning. The Hollygrove Livable Communities Project is committed to building relationships between the residents of the community, AARP, and other local partners. This was manifested in the Livable Communities Leadership Academy—an 8-week training session to develop the leadership skills of residents and their knowledge of critical livable communities issues. The majority of the 28 graduates were older adults, who became the co-chairs of the Hollygrove Project Teams that form the backbone of the Project. The Project Teams have made significant progress on their short-term goals and continue to refine and work toward their long-term goals. Accomplishments include: a community-based public safety analysis; design and construction of a bus shelter; creation of a walking club; partnership with local free health clinic; advocating against the demolition of the neighborhood-based school; and development of project-wide evaluation plan.
