Learn More About Maine’s Lifelong Communities
Maine is the national leader in the development of age-friendly initiatives with
close to 100 communities engaged in this work. People of all ages benefit from
the adoption of policies and programs that make neighborhoods walkable,
feature transportation options, enable access to key services, provide
opportunities to participate in community activities, and support housing that’s
affordable and adaptable. The Center on Aging is proud to support Maine’s
Lifelong Communities by offering programmatic support, training, and leadership development.

Maine’s Lifelong Communities movement, as well as the information and tools
needed to develop, grow, and sustain a lifelong communities initiative.
