I am so excited to welcome you to our Age-Friendly Glen Cove website! This project was initiated in 2017 by the Glen Cove Senior Center, after a discovery of AARP’s livability index score of the City of Glen Cove. After several months of research, focus groups, and surveys (and many age-friendly policies already in place), the City received an age-friendly designation, recognizing our commitment to promoting policies that enhance our City’s friendliness to aging populations.
Today, the initiative boasts almost 40 advisory board members, a volunteer and intern team, strong partnerships, and a multi-year action plan in development – a culmination of ideas from engaged residents and professionals from all areas of the City. Under a New York State Office for the Aging Planning Grant received by Nassau County to become an age-friendly county, Glen Cove has also become an Age-Friendly Center of Excellence, one of only 5 centers in the state.
