Age-Friendly Business Certification

In March 2016 Colorado Springs was named “age friendly” by AARP and World Health Organization. Colorado Springs along with the 74 other U.S. cities on the AARP Network of Age Friendly Communities are committed to being great places for all ages by adopting such features as safe, walkable streets; better housing and transportation options; access to key services; and opportunities for residents to participate in community activities.

Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado’s Age Friendly business certification was created through an alliance with Innovations in Aging Collaborative.  The program promotes age-friendly business practices and certifies Colorado Springs businesses as age-friendly through a review process on their physical environment, staff and personnel, marketing and customer experience.
