Waterford Age Friendly Strategy

The thought of living a long, happy and healthy life is appealing, but ironically the idea of aging may not be.


Age Friendly Strategy logoAdvances in medical technology have had a positive impact on older people. However, uncertainties about continued independence and availability of supports and services can be a cause of concern.

In delivering this strategy, the Waterford Age Friendly Alliance will ensure that the City and County continues to have an age-friendly approach to policies, programmes, services and infrastructure relating to the physical and the social environment, enabling older people to live in security, good health and continue to participate in society in a meaningful way.

An action plan will be developed for each of the nine strategic themes outlined in the above strategy with the various member agencies being involved in single or multiple thematic areas depending on their areas of expertise and the issues raised during the public consultation phase.
