The Commission on Aging aims to enhance the quality of life for older Arlingtonians by ensuring all planning and County activities address their specific needs.
As an advisor on aging issues to the Arlington Agency on Aging, County Board, County Manager and other County agencies, the Commission assists in the following areas:
In May 2018 Arlington was accepted into the AARP/World Health Organization network of Age Friendly Communities. The Commission on Aging spent the time between 2018 and 2020 to identify key areas of focus to make Arlington even more Age Friendly. The Arlington Age Friendly Plan “Building An Age Friendly Community” is the result of this two years of effort by the Arlington County Commission on Aging, the Age Friendly Task Force and the staff of Arlington’s Aging & Disability Services Division. Upon approval by the County Board the Plan will be forwarded to AARP/World Health Organization for approval.
You can find the Arlington Age Friendly Plan located at Arlington Age Friendly Plan 2020.
If you would like to know more, or get involved, we invite you to attend a Commission meeting, or join one of the Committees. Meeting days and times can be found here.
Effective March 2017: the Commission on Long Term Care Residences (CLTCR) is now a committee of the Commission on Aging. Previous CLTCR agendas and meeting materials can be found on the Commission on Aging page. The previous Commission documents pages will remain intact for access to previous documents as needed.
