In this Nov. 21, 2016 photo, Caroline Gould, left, and Al Cressy walk to Cressy’s car after he drove her from her home in Bethel, Maine, to a medical appointment in Auburn, Maine. The volunteer-staffed car service is one of the programs being undertaken in Bethel as part of the town’s age-friendly initiative. Hundreds of big and small communities around the world are working to make sure people can live there from birth to old age. Experts say that community efforts to become more age-friendly are gaining momentum, especially as the number of people 65 and older is expected to nearly double by 2050.
