Local bank receives age friendly certification
The Rockwood Branch of Sterling Bank was recently recognized by Elders in Action as meeting its standard for an Age Friendly Certification.
Three branches of Sterling Bank were evaluated by a team of trained volunteers, who provided feedback and recommendations in several categories that revolve around how the bank serves seniors.
Evaluators took note of age friendly practices like convenient parking, entry access and seating, space for mobility devices, friendly customer service and the banks websites readability.
Sterling is proud of our new Age Friendly Certification, said Terri Browning, retail regional director of Sterling Bank. Regardless of age, everyone deserves convenient access to banking and a genuine commitment to service.
Elders in Action is a nonprofit organization that helps seniors remain actively involved in their community.
