Kilkenny Age Friendly Final Strategy

This document outlines a new and ambitious plan to improve the lives and well being of all older adults in Kilkenny. The strategy has been developed as a result of detailed
consultation with the older people of Kilkenny, the agencies and service providers involved in the delivery of services to them. Having listened to the views, thoughts and
opinions of all and by researching models of good practice in creating age friendly environments, we have developed this strategy as a platform for delivering Kilkenny's
Age Friendly County Initiative.
