Welcome to Age-friendly Northfield Minnesota!

1140-aarp-livable-communities-logo.webIn 2016 Northfield MN joined the World Health Organization (WHO/AARP Network of Age-Friendly Cities. Northfield is well-positioned to take on the work of becoming an age-friendly city and already has many strengths as a community for older residents, but more deliberate action must be taken now and in the future, to ensure that the growing number of older adults have the housing, transportation, communication, services and other resources needed to live engaged and independent lives.

WE ARE … a community that values a high quality of life for all of its residents.
WE HEARD … what community qualities are important to the citizens aged 50 and older and what more is needed.
WE ENVISION … a community that promotes independence and a high quality of life for citizens as they age.
WE WILL … work with the community to implement the changes that will assure livability of Northfield for today’s and tomorrow’s older adults.

SURVEY: Your Feedback is Needed!

The Health and Wellness Team of Age Friendly Northfield is seeking input from adults age 50+ on the availability of in-home supports and services through an on-line survey. We value the experiences of older adults in the community who need and use these services as well as adults seeking community supports to help their parents and other older adults to age in place.

The survey is organized by service categories with a definition for each service. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Survey responses are anonymous, and results are reported as aggregate information. 
The on-line survey can be accessed at the following link:
