Living where you have friends, interests, and a sense of purpose make for a great quality of life. That’s why the Maricopa Association of Governments and its partners have formed the Regional Age-Friendly Network. The purpose of the network is to connect people of all ages to each other and to the communities they call home. These connections improve the quality of life for all residents, as well as strengthen the vibrancy of the region.
Living well isn't about counting time, but about making your time count. Connections give meaning to each minute of the day. An hour isn’t just 60 minutes; it is limitless possibilities and discoveries waiting to happen. This website is designed to be an interactive space to tap into the possibilities. Connect 60 Plus is about making every minute count.
