Ridgewood NJ, Earlier this month, Ridgewood became the 355th community to enroll in the AARP Network of Age Friendly Communities. 
According to Village of Ridgewood Mayor Ramon Hache, ” Through the collaboration between the Village of Ridgewood, Age Friendly Ridgewood, AARP, Ridgecrest, S.H.A.R.E. and our many volunteers, we will continue the work of empowering our older adults and making Ridgewood an even greater community to age in place. Special thanks to Beth Abbott and Sue Ullrich.”

  1. Every adult that ages in place keeps your real estate taxes from going up.
    We don’t use th schools and if we move, a new family with children will buy the house placing further demands on the system .
    There has historically been a turnover, but due to the states taxes, it’s accelerated the time so that it forces retirees to flee nj

  2. Mayor Hache seems to positioning himself for his next political gig.Wish them all good luck.

  3. All talk, no walk.

  4. What does this actually mean?

  5. All the organizations mentioned on the side bar deal directly with set groups of older people. If you are “Staying in Place ” there is currently no way (unless you are in HILT which is also a set organization) to find out what is going on for Seniors in Ridgewood. If the Council is getting involved in this, they need to publish it widely and tell us how we can connect with all these activities if we want to do so. An interest list should be made available for us to sign up to be notified when something of interest is going to be held. We only found out about the yearly Thanksgiving dinner through a friend who took us. We often see stories about interesting items AFTER the event is over. That is not really a great help!
