One way to strive to build a lifelong age-friendly community is to be aware that not everybody has a number two. Being mindful to include older adults in our active social lives will foster positive images of aging, intergenerational understanding, and help break the stigma associated with growing old. Our community can evolve by demonstrating respect and social inclusion.
