INNOVATORS in Healthy Aging

Partnering with you to bring solutions to an aging nation

A challenge we must face together:
the aging of America.

America Faces Dramatic Age Shift

Along with other experts in the older adult care industry, we are contemplating the unprecedented demographic shift facing our nation. The U.S. Census Bureau expects the number of adults age 65+ to outnumber children by 2035 and nearly double in number by 2060.

This dramatic and unprecedented shift requires our nation to pursue new and innovative approaches for prolonging independence, improving quality of life, and delivering care. Today’s rapid advancements in technology and medical research create a myriad of opportunities for meeting demands. Addressing this demographic challenge will require a coordinated response involving academia, business, government, non-profits, and individuals.
