Livable Communities in New Jersey 2018

AARP New Jersey endorses the efforts of all neighborhoods, cities, towns, and localities to make each and every New Jersey community a safe and inclusive place to live for people of all ages. This includes providing safe, walkable streets; age friendly housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents to be active members of their communities. These initiatives are propelled by the reality that these resources, among many others, influence whether a person can remain in the community and for how long. Once in place, those resources enhance personal independence; allow residents to age in place; and foster residents’ engagement in the community’s civic, economic, and social life.

Care-FULL Conversations: The Last One Standing Podcast

My godmother, Aunt Jane, was one of my greatest mentors. She was full of life! I always thought of her as my personal Auntie Mame. She lived life large to say the very least. She married a man, my Uncle Doc, who was 12 years her senior. She always knew that she would probably outlive him. However, she never imagined she would outlive all of her friends as well. By witnessing the journey of my beloved Aunt Jane, I learned how hard it is to be the last one standing.

When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so important to raise up great children that become productive members of society. The best way to raise children is by example. The way that we live as parents is likely what they will become. I am convinced that philanthropy and helping others is the key to living a successful life.

I am Ryan Van Wagenen and originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and now spend a great deal of time in Denver, Colorado. I have lived my whole life in Utah and Colorado and love the people in these regions.
