Age Well San Diego

To plan for the rapidly growing older adult population in our region, in 2016 the San Diego County Board of Supervisors (Board) joined the AARP® Network of Age-Friendly Communities and launched the Age Well San Diego (Age Well) initiative, in partnership with AARP® and The San Diego Foundation. The first two years of this five year process involved conducting a community needs assessment and creating an action plan. Voices of hundreds of older adults and professionals helped to shed light on what is working well in our communities and what needs improvement. Then, more than 100 seniors, professionals, and community partners worked together during a series of planning meetings to build the Age Well plan.

The Age Well San Diego Action Plan was approved by the Board on May 15th, 2018.  The plan includes goals in the areas of Dementia-friendly, Health & Community Support, Housing, Social Participation, and Transportation.  This marks the beginning of the three-year implementation and evaluation phase. The County and community partners are now working on the plan’s goals.
