Communication & Information

The effective dissemination of information about events, activities, services, and programs—and the promotion of and access to technology—to keep older residents connected to their community and friends and family.

Communication has gotten both simpler and more complicated in the age of the Internet and smartphones. There are more ways than ever before to communicate and to find and share information. Not everyone turns to the same places to find information—or even knows where to look. Age-Friendly Maple Grove is working to ensure that important community information—about services, events, programs, and activities—is readily available to older residents through a variety of means to stay connected to friends, family, and community.
