Age-Friendly NYC

The City's Age-friendly NYC: New Commitments for a City for All Ages initiative launched in 2017 with nearly 90 programs from agencies such as Housing Preservation and Development, the Departments of Finance, Health and Mental Hygiene, Parks and Recreation, the Department for the Aging, and New York City Emergency Management.

With more people living past age 60 than ever before, Age-friendly NYC shows the City's commitment to helping older adults age in place with dignity.

Falls Prevention Coalition

The New York City Falls Prevention Coalition was established in 2010 as an Age-friendly NYC initiative. The New York City Department for the Aging and Department of Health and Mental Hygiene co-chair the Coalition.

The Coalition is a partnership of organizations and members from various professional backgrounds. Members meet regularly to collaborate and raise awareness about the dangers of falls. Approximately 1 in 3 older adults falls every year - and those falls can be fatal.

The Coalition also holds events in support of National Falls Prevention Awareness Day.
