Aging in place is the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently and comfortably for as long as possible, inclusive of people of all incomes and abilities across the lifespan.

Aging in Place / Aging in Community is the City of West Hollywood’s initiative to support the quality of life, health, and well-being of older adults. Building off of the City’s existing policies and programs, the vision for the 2016-2020 Strategic Plan is to help the City of West Hollywood continue to evolve as a community where aging is embraced, and people can enjoy the community across the lifespan. 

The plan's strategies are based on the World Health Organization's Domains of Livability and correspond to the AARP Age-Friendly Cities initiative. __________________________________________________________________________________________
