As our population ages, we want to ensure our communities meet the needs of residents. Housing, transportation, accessibility, and sidewalks and pedestrian crossings are a few of the areas we focus on when it comes to making sure communities are aging-friendly.
We teach, learn, lead and serve, and connect people with the University of Wisconsin-Madison to engage with them in transforming lives and communities.
There are many resources available across Wisconsin and nationally for families.
