Age Friendly Portland

The Age-Friendly Portland Steering Committee launched a new voluntary program in April 2018 to help local business owners become more sensitive to the needs of older customers and receive recognition for efforts to make their business more “age-friendly” and accessible to all.

The Age-Friendly Business application contains a checklist of criteria that can earn a business points in different categories of “Age Friendliness”, including accessibility of interior and exterior spaces, customer service, marketing strategies, and general sensitivity to challenges that may affect the ability of older consumers to patronize a business or agency.  

Companies that meet a minimum number of required criteria will receive an Age-Friendly Business Certificate of Award and a decal to display in the storefront window. The designation may also be published on company websites, in advertising, and in local guides for visitors.
