Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
City of Norcross United States of America
From the Cherokees who first inhabited this land and the farmers and merchants who later helped it become a thriving town, to modern day visionaries who cherish its history while embracing the future, over the centuries, the land we know as the City of Norcross has been home to a diversity of people. Yet there has always been a strong sense of community, composed of individuals who enjoy the unifying bond that living here creates. It’s truly a unique place to live and grow, to work and play. And because of the creative and intellectual contributions made throughout all the past generations, and due to its collective vision for the future, Norcross continues to be a place that people are proud to call home: a place to imagine.
Gwinnett County has a number of programs and services available to the senior residents of the county; however, the City of Norcross will begin their services and programs for the citizens of the city and surrounding areas within a one mile radius. We plan to utilize and highlight these programs and services through a variety of communication platforms to include social media, news releases, and a webpage focused on “aging in place.” We will begin by initiating a series of focus groups that will identify opportunities that enhance services for the aging population and resources for caregivers. The City of Norcross read a proclamation on August 6, 2018 for National Senior Day, August 21, 2018, and have plans to pass a resolution to support the age-friendly initiative for generations to come.
