Age-Friendly Communities

Age Friendly Communities in King County

As our region’s population ages, we are committed to helping communities become more age-friendly. The World Health Organization has established a set of recommended issues for cities to address, and AARP is helping advance these “8 Domains of Livability” across the U.S. Aging and Disability Services is proud that both Seattle and Renton have made formal commitments to become Age-Friendly Cities, and we are happy to provide information and guidance to any other community in King County that is interested in joining this movement.
