Aging Well Neighborhood Page
Welcome to the Aging Well Neighborhood (AWN), an initiative funded by Community Memorial Foundation!
Our vision is to transform the health and healthcare services of aging adults through the creation of a "health neighborhood" that assists the whole person and affirms the benefits of a life-long process of wellness and prevention.
Our mission is to join medical and social service providers to deliver coordinated care by tapping into our community assets and resources to address how older adults now and in the future live, work, and age in the Greater Lyons Township area.
