One Albuquerque Age-Friendly

Learn about Albuquerque's efforts to achieve Age-Friendly designation by AARP and the World Health Organization.

What makes a community age-friendly?

The most livable communities are those that enable residents to thrive at every age and every life stage--in other words, they are age-friendly. The AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities uses the following 8 Domains of livability as a framework for communities working to be more age-friendly.

  • Outdoor Spaces and Buildings
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Social Participation
  • Respect and Social Inclusion
  • Work and Civic Engagement
  • Communication and Information
  • Community and Health Services

Over the next few months, the Department of Senior Affairs will build an action plan comprised of stakeholder commitments and community input. This plan will serve as a guide and provide ways to make our City more age-friendly for residents of all ages.

We need your input to ensure the plan works for everyone. That’s why we will be gathering community input through an in-person convening, as well as soliciting feedback online. Keep an eye on this webpage for information on key dates, areas of age-friendly work, and a survey link. We hope you will join us on the journey to become One Albuquerque Age-Friendly!
