Age-Friendly Sarasota strives to build a lifelong community by developing a more livable environment — FOR ALL AGES.
Now that we’re living, on average, 30 years longer than our great-grandparents, AFS has begun taking action to have a lasting positive influence and impact in this longevity revolution.

Collectively, we focus on the 8 Domains of Livability — interconnected domains that can help to identify and peruse possibilities for the well-being of people as they age — outlined in the World Health Organization’s age-friendly cities framework to build upon this region’s assets and citizens’ aspirations to optimize active, healthy, and engaged living for people throughout their lifespan.
