First Financial Bank has become the first bank in the state of Texas to be named a Certified Age-Friendly local business by AARP, the bank said in a news release.
Local businesses were evaluated on their abilities to provide a better customer experience for older individuals by implementing wheelchair ramps, accessible entrances, and special employee training.
Only four Fort Worth businesses met the requirements to receive the prestigious Age-Friendly designation, the release said.
“We are so proud of this certification by AARP,” said Martin Noto Jr., Fort Worth region CEO of First Financial Bank. “This older segment of the Fort Worth population means a great deal to us and we want them to feel at home at First Financial Bank. It is another way we strive to put our customers first.”
In 2017, Fort Worth became the first city in Texas to be introduced into the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. This recognition demonstrates Fort Worth’s commitment to fostering a livable environment for people of all ages, particularly the city’s older residents.
