Older Adult Strategy

We are committed to making sure that older adults in our community can remain healthy and age with dignity; participating in initiatives that aim to address all of the dimensions of wellness, as we continue our work toward ensuring social participation and inclusion. 

The Recreation and Culture division is developing an Older Adult Strategy that will provide direction for Cambridge 50+ Recreation Community Support programs and service delivery over the next 5 years. This strategy will be completed considering input from residents and key community partners and through the lens of the World Health Organizations (WHO) Age- friendly cities framework.
