Living in Age-Friendly Edmonton

Tue, 26 Aug by The Paranych Team
Age-friendly Edmonton

Our healthy and growing senior demographic is proof that we are an Age-friendly City.

The Paranych Luxury team is proud of our city. We think that our city offers people the perfect combination of community, energy, opportunity and compassion.

Our city’s ongoing commitment to all people was made clear with the Edmonton Seniors Declaration back in 2010, when the World Health Organization (WHO) officially made Edmonton an Age Friendly City. In our Declaration, it states that:

 

Individuals are respected regardless of age. All generations have much to teach and learn from each other.
Older people have ready access to programs, employment, activities and services that help them stay engaged, respected and appreciated.
Age is a gift to the city. We will value all the individuals who bring it to us.

 

Our city has benefitted from the vision of our seniors today and current leaders, volunteers and citizens work to ensure that seniors receive the support they need.

The city recognizes that as more families and newcomers arrive in Edmonton, the senior population grows. In fact, according to this report, Edmonton’s senior population is expected to grow from 13% to 20% over the next 10 years.

Our city is responding to this growth by working closely with senior groups and centres around Edmonton to ensure that they have the support they need to thrive.

There are specific cultural and multicultural support groups, lifestyle groups and senior programs available for people who are settling into our great city.

Below is a short list of some of the many support services and groups available to seniors. We’ve marked the areas of the city these centres are located, as well as the local phone numbers.
