Here are a few documents that can help with the selection of indicators:

World Health Organization (WHO), 2015:

Measuring the Age-friendliness of Cities: A Guide to Using Core Indicators

WHO Age Friendly Cities: Checklist

Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), 2015:

Age-Friendly Communities Evaluation Guide: Using Indicators to Measure Progress

Note, your ideal indicator might not be available or possible to obtain e.g. data might not be available at your community level or not available for the time frame you are interested in. As well, when selecting indicators, consider using your stakeholders and the ‘SMART’ criteria.
