Exciting Times Ahead!

Honolulu is in the midst of an exciting transformation. With the vision and leadership of Mayor Kirk Caldwell and AARP Hawai‘i, Honolulu is committed to becoming an age-friendly city. According to AARP, an age-friendly city entails “an inclusive and accessible urban or suburban environment that encourages active and healthy aging.”

The World Health Organization says an Age-Friendly City is a place that enables people of all ages to actively participate in community activities.

Such a place treats everyone with respect, regardless of their age. It makes it easy to stay connected to those around you and those you love.

It is a place that helps people stay healthy and active even at the oldest ages. And it is a place that helps those who can no longer look after themselves to live with dignity and enjoyment.
