Aging population, Older people -- Services for, Older people -- Oregon -- Portland
The goal of this Action Plan is to enhance Portland, Oregon’s age friendliness. As defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), an "age friendly" city:
- has structures and services that are accessible and inclusive of older people with varying needs and capacities
- emphasizes enablement rather than disablement, and
- is friendly for people of all ages and abilities
The action steps that comprise this plan are intended to move Portland toward future development and activities that foster not only physical environments but also social and service environments that meet these criteria, making Portland a community for all ages.
