Gov. Baker to Hold Community Listening Session to Address Aging in MA
Saturday, June 10, 2017
“The notion that people are fully retired at the age of 65 is inconsistent with what I see around Massachusetts every day. Many of our older adults still have ample time, energy and talent available to start a second or third career, volunteer in their community, become a mentor or pursue an unfulfilled passion. I look forward to the council’s work considering ways for the state to improve public and private means for supporting and engaging with older adults," said Baker.
The session will take place on June 26 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at UMass Medical Worcester Campus. The event is open to the public.
Specifically, Baker would like to hear about:
- What factors make your community a great place to grow older?
- How can we support families that include one or more older adults?
- How can we promote more human connectedness (reduce loneliness, isolation) in communities?
- What are the top two issues or concerns that create barriers to people being able to age well in their communities?
- How can we accelerate innovation to support and connect older adults?
- How can we change public perceptions about aging?
