As city populations age, there's a need to consider the specific needs of older people in urban areas.

This is a great opportunity: creating age-friendly cities means not just adapting places to deal with problems, but encouraging all to take full advantage of city life and living. An age-friendly approach extends far beyond concerns about health and social care.
