Age-Friendly Sarasota officially launched in May 2015. This was a strong indicator that Sarasota was ready to begin a shift in culture and to help pioneer our region in the longevity revolution.
The community movement is well underway. Age-Friendly Sarasota initially completed a two-year assessment of Sarasota County's age-friendly assets (May 2015 – May 2017). The assessment explored aspirations of Sarasota County's residents as they relate to the World Health Organization's 8 Domains of Livability. Utilizing data from the assessment combined with data on existing community assets, the Age-Friendly Sarasota County Action Plan was developed and shared with the community.
