Next Steps

The Age-Friendly Steering Committee is finishing data collection for the community feedback phase. Hundreds of community members have been involved in several focus groups and/or provided feedback through a community survey. After the final focus group on March 15, the Committee will evaluate and use the findings to build an Action Plan to guide future Age-Friendly Worthington efforts. 

What is Age-Friendly Worthington?

The Worthington community is committed to being a place that promotes successful aging and improves the quality of life for people of all ages. With this goal in mind, community partners are working together on the Age-Friendly Initiative to create and showcase community features and programs that impact the well-being of older adults and help make communities more livable for everyone.

The initiative is being led by a steering committee made up of community stakeholders, City staff, and older adults and we need your help. We invite you to share your feedback about existing programs/initiatives and hear your ideas for how Age-Friendly Worthington could further impact and improve the quality of life for people of all ages.
