Action Plan Download
Biddeford developed its action plan with the goal of making the city more inclusive to older adults and making sure older residents feel safe and vested in the community, Biddeford commits to study, propose, and provide services that older adults need to remain in the community, and to provide the support older adults need when they can no longer care for themselves. The plan encourages and provides ways for all residents to stay involved in healthy activities, and encourages the development of accessible sidewalks, paths, and crosswalks for safe and pleasant outdoor enjoyment.
Action Plan Highlights
Outdoor SpacesCreate a more age-friendly downtown through improvements to sidewalks, walkways, curbs, and public restrooms.
TransportationHelp residents access daily needs through a volunteer driver program, and by enhancing taxi services and rideshare programs by making them more accessible for people with disabilities.
Health and Community ServicesHelp older adults review health insurance options through a network of trained volunteers.
