The word “domain” in Age-Friendly work refers to eight specific areas of community life. Each of the eight areas contributes to creating an Age-Friendly community. The communities in Saskatchewan that are on the Age-Friendly journey work on projects in these areas to enhance the lives of the people living in their communities.

In an Age-Friendly community, there are opportunities for citizens of all ages and abilities to participate in community decision making and to contribute their experience and skills to the community in paid or unpaid work, or in volunteering. This includes older adults and those with varying abilities.
In an Age-Friendly community, there is local access to social and health services needed to stay healthy and independent. This includes access to health services such as physicians, nurse practitioners, and public health nurses, either in the community, or with affordable transportation or online connection readily available.
