In December 2019, County Executive Calvin Ball and the Howard County Department of Aging announced the launch of Age-Friendly Howard County, an initiative to join the AARP network of age-friendly states and communities, an affiliate of the World Health Organization (WHO), that will improve the quality of life for all residents that want to live, work, play and age in our County. 

Currently, 21 percent of Howard County residents are over 60 years old and in 25 years, this number will increase to nearly 30 percent,” said Ball. “Building an Age-Friendly Howard County is a long-term effort which will require a new way of working together: collaboration among citizens of all ages, with a great deal of input from older adults; and, businesses, non-profit organizations, government agencies, civic organizations, faith-based communities and philanthropic groups.”  

Join us virtually to learn more about the details of the County's 3-5 year Age Friendly action plan, followed by a panel discussion on aging issues and resources unique to our County.
