Nearly 50 Brookline businesses, large and small throughout Brookline, are designated as Age Friendly. This means that the establishments attract seniors by offering services that are attractive to them, such as shopping by phone or on-line, offering discounts or employment opportunities, or provide safety features, such as clearly marked steps.
Look for the “Age Friendly” decal on doors and windows at participating stores and businesses. They include banks, retail stores, cultural institutions and hotels. A complete list of participating businesses can be found on the BrooklineCAN website http://www.brooklinecan.org/afb_list.php). These businesses are enthusiastic about the Age-Friendly Movement, which was initiated by Brookline Community Aging Network (BrooklineCAN)—an all-volunteer organization—and the Brookline Council on Aging.
