Empower agencies and communities through continuous quality improvement
We are strengthening intergenerational family life and preventing the root causes of elder isolation, abuse and neglect through a data-driven process of continuous quality improvement (CQI).
REDEFINING FAMILY AND AGING
A significant number of grandparents are actively engaged in raising their grandchildren, requiring vital family-friendly services to ensure the safety and health of all members of an intergenerational family. Our question is simple: if grandparents are taking care of the grandkids, how are communities taking care of the grandparents?

With our huge aging baby boomer population, our older men and women represent sizable populations in most cities and towns. Their health impacts, directly or indirectly, a majority of our families, health organizations, social service agencies and communities. While growing older for some is a time of reinvention and new vistas, others face challenges in the form of lack of stable housing, food, transport, health care, home care and experience elder neglect and abuse.

Many men and women entering what used to be called “retirement age” are far from retirement or winding down. Sixty+ folks are working, starting new ventures, and rethinking priorities—and like everyone else, they require special assistance to thrive.

We’re rethinking what it means to be "older" and building the capacity of communities to offer vital medical and behavioral health care and other key services. Join us in strengthening our social service agencies and making every community a place to find success no matter what age.

The magnitude of challenges facing older adults and intergenerational families requires a data-driven, cross-sector and systemic strategy in every community. Strong state and local leadership is crucial. Contact Us.
