Age-Friendly Business Initiative Accepting New Applications Beginning November 1

Post Date:10/29/2019 4:41 PM

Age FriendlyAge-Friendly Evanston will begin accepting the next round of applications for their Age-Friendly Business Initiative on November 1, 2019.

The Age-Friendly Business Initiative recognizes businesses in the Evanston community that are making an extra effort to become accessible to all customers, and particularly older adults. This summer over 20 businesses completed the process to become recognized as Age-Friendly.   

Businesses can learn more about the Age-Friendly movement and how to become a recognized business by downloading the Age-Friendly Business Resource Guide at cityofevanston.org/agefriendlybusiness. After reviewing the Guide, businesses can begin the application process by completing the Age-Friendly Business Checklist and scheduling a collaborative consultation with an Age-Friendly Evanston representative. In the final phase of the process, shoppers will be asked to provide their feedback on the businesses that have applied.  

Recognized business will be highlighted at the 2020 Aging Well Conference, receive results on feedback gathered from shopper surveys, be listed on the City’s website, receive a window decal, and have the opportunity to host special events in conjunction with the City.

For more information about the Initiative and application process, please call 847-866-2919.
