Age-Friendly Louisville works with community partners and stakeholders across all eight age-friendly domains to ensure that age-friendly practices are effectively and efficiently integrated across our community.
Age-Friendly Louisville is led in partnership by Louisville Metro Government, AARP Kentucky, KIPDA, and the UofL Institute for Sustainable Health and Optimal Aging.
Age-friendly policies are given priority in the upcoming 2040 Comprehensive Plan. We look forward to working with our partners to ensure Louisville is a place where people can let active and vibrant lives regardless of their age.

It is so important for Louisville to further these initiatives in lifelong wellness and aging care- being an Age-Friendly Louisville gives the city the opportunity to recognize the great diversity of our citizens, support inclusion and honor the contributions made in all areas of the community.

At the national level, ARRP is a leader in promoting Age-Friendly cities. Locally, we will leverage our resources and network to connect the initiative to critical grassroots systems and advocacy channels. We are working to create a state-wide conversation where all of Kentucky's age-friendly communities - Berea, Bowling Green, Lexington, and Louisville - can share ideas and support one another in the process of becoming age-friendly.

The Institute looks forward to leveraging its connections to achieve wide-reaching coordination and collaboration in this effort. Such comprehensive buy-in will be vital to the success of the age-friendly city endeavor: improving the quality of life not only for our older residents but for residents of all ages.

I look forward to the day when all citizens in Louisville can say their community is age-friendly; that regardless of a person's age (from early childhood to centenarian), all are able to access and actively participate in their community; the place where they live.
