This brief, updated from August 2020, highlights states that have a Master Plan for Aging, provides examples of key elements of those plans, and discusses how states without a Master Plan can get started.

At the final week of our 2021 Forum, Amplifying All Voices in Aging, we were joined by founder of RENT Poet/Poet Laureate Brian Sonia-Wallace. Complementing our focus on technical aspects of the work we do to transform care for older adults, Mr. Sonia-Wallace authored a poem in real time to bring us back to the heart of the matter: What do we mean by “aging well” and “aging equitably”? Read the poem and learn more about RENT Poet.

We believe aging is a personal, positive journey

As Americans live longer, it is time for creative solutions so that older adults, families, and communities are supported by health care, services and supports, and financing.

To that end, we at The SCAN Foundation build awareness about people's experiences and challenges. We prototype and pilot efforts in real time. We enable novel partnerships between unlikely groups to find common ground.
