Arlington developed its action plan with the goal of creating a town where residents of all ages and abilities can thrive. Focusing on both age- and dementia-friendly initiatives, the plan incorporates the work of residents, stakeholders, civic leaders, businesses and non-profit organizations, as well as state and local government agencies. The plan focuses on increasing opportunities for residents to age in place, promoting transportation options for residents of all ages, and working to provide additional supports to caregivers.
