The Township of Tiny is committed to exploring opportunities to enhance senior services. Creating a community where older people are valued and can enjoy good health, happiness, and fulfillment is our priority. As a result, the Township has undertaken a local aging study. The goal of the strategy is to improve the overall health, well-being and quality of life for older adults and seniors across the Township. The Local Aging Plan outlines Tiny's opportunities to enhance senior services and strategies to develop an Age-Friendly Community.
Domains of Age-Friendly Communities
The WHO Age-friendly Cities framework developed in the Global Age-friendly Cities Guide proposes eight interconnected domains that can help to identify and address barriers to the well-being and participation of older people. These domains overlap and interact with each other.
Community consultation and input opportunities for Tiny's Local Aging Plan were structured to obtain resident and stakeholder viewpoints in the context of 8 globally recognized domains of Age-Friendly Communities.
