Age-Friendly Massachusetts: Action Plan & Progress Reports

The Age-Friendly Massachusetts Action Plan serves as the state’s multiyear plan to make the Commonwealth, as a whole, more age- and dementia-friendly. It sets forth a mission and vision and includes a comprehensive set of values, goals, and strategies advancing Massachusetts’ efforts to become an age-friendly state. 

The plan defines tangible and measurable goals while recognizing that becoming age-friendly is a fluid process and ongoing journey that requires direction from community members and partners. This plan will be submitted to AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities but will be continuously updated with input from residents, communities, and stakeholders.

Each year, the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) releases a progress report (listed below), outlining the strides the Commonwealth has made to becoming more age- and dementia-friendly. 

In 2023, EOEA released the podcast, ReiMAgine Aging, as the year four progress report. The podcast highlights local efforts that make Massachusetts a great place to grow up and grow older together. Each episode takes listeners to different Massachusetts communities that are delivering unique and innovative age- and dementia-friendly programs. ReiMAgine Aging is available to stream on SpotifyApple Podcasts, or by clicking the links below:

ReiMAgine Aging was produced in partnership with the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative (MHAC) with funding from Point32Health Foundation
