Why Become an Age-Friendly Business?

The Age-Friendly Glen Cove Business Certification Program is an initiative in our action plan that assists businesses to identify age-friendly features by providing educational materials on physical changes and business practices they can implement to attract, serve, and retain customers as they age. Age-Friendly Glen Cove works to promote these age-friendly businesses by helping spread the word to older adults about their age-friendly business features. Becoming an age-friendly business is a commitment to a process of looking at your business through an age-friendly lens.

It’s important because…

– Glen Cove has a growing older population with specific needs
– Older adults are loyal customers and big spenders
– Everyone benefits
– It’s easy to do and affordable
