What cities can learn from West Sacramento's age-friendly journey

As part of the city of West Sacramento's process to be more friendly to their aging population, they partnered with the organization AARP to implement their age-friendly framework and received funding to fund their obligatory three-year plan. This funded the facilitation of many surveys of anyone over 45 in the city, which led to the realization that seniors don't want to be defined by their deficits. This reportedly changed the mindsets of public policy makers, paving the way for future programs to be engaging and uplifting for all ages.
