Are you worried about old age?

Old age is a unique stage of life with unique — and often complicated — health considerations. Instead of stigmatizing our elders, we need to center their care and quality of life. Many healthcare systems around the world are inefficient and fragmented. How can we overcome these challenges so we can all age with dignity?

The system needs investment

Quality relationships and meaningful activities are important in promoting happiness and health in old age. But our modern cities don’t offer many environments that support those needs. For people who need institutional care such as assisted living, the challenges are even more fierce; these facilities can be isolating, with few opportunities for engagement. Investments in technology, compensation for laborers, and infrastructure are badly needed.
