Age Friendly Business Recognition Programme
The Age Friendly Business Recognition Programme encourages retailers and service providers to think about what low- or no-cost changes they can make to help their older customers’ experience better.
Participating businesses are asked to nominate an ‘Age Friendly Champion’ to undergo a short online training course, consult with customers, and implement three Age Friendly actions. Some of the changes that successfully accredited businesses have made include providing a rest chair, making sure all signage is easy to read and in large print and making sure to give each customer as much time as they need.
Having completed the programme, Age Friendly accredited businesses can display their certification and accreditation window sticker at their premises and will also be listed on the Age Friendly Ireland website.
