Age-Friendly Community

The Village of Harrison Hot Springs is proud to be designated as an Age-friendly Community

Age-friendly features include . . .

  • Walkable sidewalks, pathways and trails
  • Good accessibility to and within public buildings (e.g., few stairs, wheelchair ramps that are not too steep, accessible washrooms)
  • Along footpaths, accessible washrooms (e.g., wide push-button doors, rails and rest areas, including benches that are an appropriate height

Ideally, community dialogues will involve all members of the community in the
exploration of age-friendliness, as many of the features that benefit older adults
can also benefit other groups in the community.  The Age-Friendly community that works for seniors works for everyone.
