People are living longer, which calls for new intergenerational strategies to value and care for older adults. Community networks are needed to fill in housing, mobility and caregiving gaps, especially for older adults who are isolated, low-income and underserved.
AGE+ empowers communities through stimulating partnerships, training and sponsoring innovative programs that address the real and growing challenges facing aging in America.
