Welcome to the Living Well Network

Fostering community and honoring individual experiences of aging in the Agassiz neighborhood and beyond, the Living Well Network is a grassroots-based program of the Agassiz Baldwin Community. It links adults age 55+ with a social network, activities, events, volunteer opportunities, and classes that enrich people’s lives. LWN advocates for Cambridge seniors and celebrates the many positive aspects of growing older. Created as a way to apply the nation-wide “Aging in Place” social movement to the Agassiz community, LWN nurtures healthy aging best-practices, and seeks to support people staying in their homes and neighborhoods as they age.

Mission Statement
The Living Well Network fosters a strong and engaged 55+ community so that residents continue to thrive as they age. Values:

  • We promote aging in place
  • We promote life long learning
  • We promote physical, mental and social health
  • We promote connecting neighborhood elders to each other and to resources, programs and services.

LWN Update is a September through June weekly electronic newsletter featuring local events and activities, with coverage of a wide array of issues significant to the aging community. To sign up for LWN Update, include your full name, email address, and postal mail address please. Email here to sign up.
