Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative - Age and Dementia Friendly Community Movement

The Design for Aging Committee is welcoming James Fuccione, MPA, Senior Director of the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative (MHAC) for the June 2018 meeting to speak about the Age and Dementia Friendly Community movement and how our state is a national leader in an effort to create livable and inclusive communities for people of all ages. Mr. Fuccione will be joining Sandra B. Harris, Principal of S. Harris Interiors, a DFA founding member, and an AARP Volunteer for the presentation and discussion.

As a complement to previous presentations and discussions on Livable Communities provided by Michael E. Festa, State Director of AARP Massachusetts and from the Age-Friendly Boston Initiative provided by the city’s Elderly Commission, Mr. Fuccione will be discussing the statewide efforts on how cities, towns and regions across Massachusetts are becoming Age and Dementia Friendly. Moreover, the discussion will focus on opportunities for The BSA Design for Aging Committee and its membership to get involved in advising and influencing local and statewide work.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available.
