Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
Palo Alto, California United States of America
The City of Palo Alto has an ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of older adults in the community. The Age-Friendly Initiative is part of the City’s overall commitment to the health and wellness of its residents, and future activities to be included as part of this initiative will be implemented under the umbrella of the City’s “Healthy City, Healthy Community” program: http://www.cityofpaloalto.org/gov/depts/csd/healthy.asp
