Successful Aging

Successful aging is enabling seniors to age in place, with access to high-quality, affordable health and support services that preserve and protect their dignity, quality of life and independence.

Our Focus is on Improving

We’re researching how specialized care delivery in the hospital, more healthcare at home and improved social services like meals and nutrition support can help seniors age successfully at a place of their choosing.
