Healthy Aging

Waltham Connections for Healthy Aging is a coalition of 30+ senior activists and 15+ agencies (including Healthy Waltham) that are working to make Waltham an age-friendly community, as well as a model for community involvement for seniors. Connections is demonstrating an alternative to the WHO/AARP age-friendly communities model, which is led by municipalities.  Our model relies on the initiative of older adults working with a coalition of City and non-profit agencies. Our work is supported by major grants (2017-21) from the Tufts Health Plan Foundation, the AARP, as well as others.
