The town of Yarmouth is an Age-Friendly Community that
provides and maximizes opportunities for health, participation, and security for all
residents of Yarmouth. The Town supports active aging in an enabling community that
maintains quality of life and well-being for everyone.
Mission of Age-Friendly Community Team
Using a lifespan viewpoint, which is a “cradle to grave” approach, for identifying
and developing services and resources that focus on empowerment and selfdetermination,
the team will work to promote and facilitate inter-generational involvement
in a Town that is friendly and welcoming to people of all ages.
