Englewood's action plan aims to maximize the social, physical and economic participation of older adults so they may age in place with dignity and independence. The community aims to expand programs that support affordable property maintenance and home repair, promote and advocate for improved public amenities, and create an enhanced network of transportation options to increase the mobility of older adults and provide access to a broad range of activities. The plan also looks to promote and provide better access to available health and social services.
