Given the strong relationship between environmental and social factors and successful aging, it is critical that these variables be considered when planning and developing communities for older adults. As such, there is growing interest in establishing community-wide projects to change built (physical) and social environments so that older adults do not encounter barriers to social participation. These modifications may include establishing transportation assistance, providing sidewalk benches, creating community senior centers, and hosting social, cultural, or recreational events. Such approaches are critical to building age-friendly cities that promote active aging and enhance quality of life by providing resources for health, social participation, and security to older adults. The development of age-friendly cities reflects a large-scale intervention aimed at providing resources to individuals across the life-span that target critical facets of successful aging.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
