Age-Friendly Teaneck is Taking its Campaign to Educate the Community on the Road
Age-Friendly Teaneck leaders want to make sure more residents are aware of our campaign to make the Township a great place to grow old as well as a great place to grow up. We've been packing up our newsletters, brochures and resource guides and bringing them to community gatherings. On May 5, Age-Friendly, together
with the Teaneck Historical Society, sponsored an informational table at the TOPS 5K run/walk and roll. Despite the constant rain, community members stopped by to learn more about our efforts to promote walkable neighborhoods and additional housing and transportation options for older adults, as well as our work to promote better health and increased social engagement. On April 10, Age-Friendly Teaneck joined with Holy Name Medical Center to sponsor a Health and Resource Fair at the Rodda Center, the goal of which was to connect older adults with a range of program representatives, including officials from the Bergen County Division of Senior Services. And on March 24, Age-Friendly Teaneck was the subject of a forum at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, part of our ongoing efforts to enlist Teaneck's houses of worship in our campaign to connect isolated older adults with needed programs and services.
