Age-Friendly Carlsbad Survey

The City of Carlsbad, in partnership with the American Association of Retired Persons’ Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities and the San Diego Foundation Age-Friendly Communities Program, is developing the city’s first Age-Friendly Action Plan called Age-Friendly Carlsbad.

The action plan will use community participation and feedback to create goals for implementing policies and programs that enhance the quality of life in the community for people of all ages and abilities.

By 2035, the United States will — for the first time ever — be a country comprised of more older adults than of children. The U.S. Census Bureau projects there will be 78 million people age 65 and over compared to 76.4 million under the age of 18. Carlsbad wants to be ready.

The city will be collecting data and learning from the community about ways to increase the livability of Carlsbad across the age spectrum.

Carlsbad residents 45 years old or older are invited to participate in a survey to share what’s important to them in each of these eight domains of livability and what they need as they age. The survey is open through Sept. 13. De sus comentarios hasta 13 de septiembre.

 AARP defines livability using the 8 Domains of Livability:

  • Civic Participation and Employment
  • Communication and Information
  • Health Services and Community Support
  • Housing
  • Outdoor spaces and buildings
  • Respect and Social Inclusion
  • Social Participation
  • Transportation
