RIVERVIEW (N.B.) – The Town of Riverview is seeking feedback from local seniors to help inform future opportunities and improvements to the town.

The Seniors' Roundtable has put forward a new community survey that tackles questions regarding housing, access to essential services, transportation needs, activity programming, and more in an effort to understand which issues matter most to residents. The project is intended to move the Town closer to being an 'age-friendly' community, supporting a good quality life so that older adults can remain in their homes longer or move to suitable alternative housing as they age. Active lifestyle, sense of community, and security are all vital metrics of the survey that seeks to enhance inclusion.

This initiative is part of the Town's Strategic Plan to engage and establish a goal that accommodates the needs of the aging population. 

"Community building makes for a healthy and welcoming town that encourages its residents to enjoy what life has to offer," explained Councillor and co-founder of the Senior's Roundtable, Cecile Cassista. "The process requires the approval of the government for municipalities to receive the designation to be an age-friendly community. It's important that all aspects of the survey are provided as an option for the community to respond and share their feedback. The Senior's Roundtable is committed to working through the various stages of the community input to address any shortcomings that may exist. The committee work on this started just before the pandemic, and as such it had to be placed on the shelf for a short period. We are pleased that phase 1 is now well on its way."

The survey consists of 60 optional questions to gauge the issues most important to residents 55+.

The committee thanks respondents in advance for their valuable feedback and participation. Residents are encouraged to share the survey with the seniors in their life.


What is an age-friendly community?

In an age-friendly community, the policies, services and structures related to the physical and social environment are designed to help seniors "age actively." In other words, the community is set up to help seniors live safely, enjoy good health and stay involved.
