Age-Friendly Silicon Valley (AFSV)

The World Health Organization (WHO) created a template to help communities meet the challenge of transforming our streets, services, parks and playgrounds— and our attitudes and feelings— to accommodate the growing population of elderly people. For the first time ever, older people outnumber the young in the U.S.; by 2030, one in four Santa Clara County residents will be over the age of 60.

This county-wide effort was led by the Seniors’ Agenda of Santa Clara County, Department of Aging and Adult Services, and assisted each of the 15 cities in Santa Clara County in achieving designation by the World Health Organization as an age-friendly city.

Santa Clara County Livability Survey 2016

Age Friendly Three Year Action Plan 2020-2023

The Action Plan calls for assessing the domains of community life which impact older residents in our community and developing a plan to improve the well-being of those residents.

Seniors’ Agenda Annual Report

The 2019  annual report will show how we met our goal of becoming the first county in the U.S. to have all of its cities designated age-friendly by the World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age-friendly Cities as well as our progress as a pilot community for a Dementia Friendly America.
