Villages of the Berkshires, Inc. is also collaborating with Age-Friendly Berkshires. Age-friendly Berkshires is an AARP sponsored program. Inspired by a global effort of the World Health Organization to create age-friendly communities –– communities where people of all ages can actively participate in local activities and where everyone is treated with respect, regardless of age. The age-friendly program looks at community needs from the focus of citizens aged 55 and above to identify requirements common to all age groups as well the unique needs of the senior cohort.
