Action Plan Download
Westchester County developed its action plan with the goal of keeping older adults in their homes as they age, helping them grow older with independence, dignity and continued civic engagement. The plan also looks to develop communities that are friendly to older residents and people of all ages through educational and cultural programs, safer sidewalks, consumer protection, and advocacy for more affordable housing. Westchester County will continue work on providing health and wellness programs for older adults, and creating more accessible and adequate transportation options both within the county and into surrounding jurisdictions.
