What Older Adults Want

We believe changing the narrative on aging demands a human-centered approach to better understand older people by welcoming them into the design process.

With Birsel + Seck, we listened to diverse adults ages 65 and older. Read the report.

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.
