Raymond Accepted into Age Friendly Community Network

 

Communities in the AARP age-friendly network are not retirement villages, gated developments, nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

 

Membership in the network does not mean that the community is, currently, “age-friendly” or a great place to retire.

Membership in the network is not an endorsement by AARP.

What membership does mean is that a community has made the commitment to actively work toward making our town a great place for people of all ages.

 

 

Raymond Age Friendly Project

A group of 35-40 Raymond resident have joined together to develop policies and programs to make Raymond a more age friendly community. We meet periodically to discuss and plan our next steps.
