AGE FRIENDLY BAY RIDGE
By 2040 seniors will comprise 21.7% of the population
and by 2060 there will be about 98 million older persons,
more than twice their number in 2013.
In 2014 Bay Ridge Center in cooperation with Community
Board 10 spearheaded an age friendly initiative. Through
subsequent meetings and focus groups we have evolved into
the Bay Ridge Age Friendly project. Our focus is to identify and implement initiatives that will help seniors more successfully age in place in the community where they live. We can accomplish our goals by working along with local community leaders, city government agencies and dedicated volunteers.
We have already identified transportation, quality of life issues, increased senior housing options and senior safety concerns as initial focus areas.
