Watertown for All Ages
We are a member Watertown for All Ages, a town-wide collaboration of individuals working to help Watertown become an Age Friendly Community. The organization recently received grants from Watertown Community Foundation and Tufts Health Plan Foundation to spearhead an initiative to ensure older residents have access to safe, affordable, convenient transporation.  Throughout 2019, WAA and its advisory committee will study the obstacles facing older people who don't drive or who plan to scale back driving and will create a series of recommendations to address these obstacles. For more information, visit WatertownForAllAges.org or contact info@watertownforallages.org.
