Living Well

We foster a strong, connected, engaged, and healthy community of residents 55 and up.

We have suspended most in-person Living Well Network activities until further notice. You will find many of our programs online!

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 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 originally to apply “Aging in Place” social movement to the Baldwin community, LWN nurtures healthy aging best-practices, and seeks to support residents throughout Cambridge to stay in our homes and neighborhoods as we age.

Mission Statement
The Living Well Network fosters a strong and engaged community of residents 55 and over who continue to thrive as we age. We promote:

  • Aging in place
  • Life long learning
  • Physical, mental and social health
  • Connecting neighborhood elders to each other, to other community members, and to resources, programs and services.

The LWN Update is a weekly electronic newsletter featuring local events and activities, with coverage of a wide array of issues significant to the our community. To receive The Update click here to sign up and select “Living Well Network General Interest” from the drop-down lists.
