Age Friendly Buncombe County

Age-Friendly Buncombe County was established in 2017 when the County joined the World Health Organization and AARP’s Network of Age-friendly Communities. This action was a major step toward the Aging Plan goal of increasing the age-friendly capability of Buncombe County.

Age-Friendly Buncombe is a big tent, bringing together community collaborations, committees, and working groups committed to the following Common Agenda: Older Adults in Buncombe County are Safe, Well, and Engaged in their Community.

Over eighty nonprofit organizations, business, governmental departments and other partners, as well as many older adult volunteers, participate in the committees and working groups affiliated with Age-friendly Buncombe.

Age-Friendly Action Plan

The Aging Plan

Formerly known as the 2018-2022 Buncombe County Aging Plan, the Age-Friendly Action Plan reflects a few changes. First, this plan reflects Buncombe County’s affiliation with the WHO/AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. Second, it aligns with the County’s 2025 Strategic Plan. Last, it shifts away from a 5-year static plan, to a rolling 3-year plan, which will be updated as needed but at least every 2 years.
