Age-Friendly Akron Survey Results
Nov 12, 2020
In May of 2019, the city of Akron in the state of Ohio was admitted into AARP’s network of age friendly cities and communities. Akron has a long history of aging services initiative that date back to the 1970s. In order to provide direction for future aging initiatives an assessment of Akron current state was conducted in early 2020. A survey designed to capture information on the eight age-friendly domains was designed and mailed to 3,000 randomized individuals in Akron’s ten political wards. A total of 656 individuals responded and returned the survey.
