About

Salem for All Ages is about creating a welcoming, livable, and supportive community
for people of all ages, abilities, and interests.

What is an Age-Friendly city? According to the World Health Organization ( WHO), it’s a place that makes a conscious effort to encourage active aging, a place that provides opportunities for such things as good health, inclusion and security. It’s a place that enhances the quality of life for people as they age.

In Salem we went further. We believe that an Age-Friendly city is a city for all ages. We believe that whether it’s a park bench, adequate transportation or excellent health services, these things will help the elderly but they’ll help everyone who lives in Salem thus we call our initiative “Salem for all ages”.
