Dedham’s population is aging, like many communities in the United States and around the world. Livable Dedham is an advocacy group formed in 2015 to encourage creative thinking and action in developing an “age friendly” community. Livable Dedham seeks improvements for all generations across the lifespan.
The World Health Organization image below captures the strong impact our environment has on our health and wellness.
