Transforming care for older adults
Growing Older, Better
THE LATEST: ALIVE VENTURES
Did you know that portrayals of older adults age 50 and older are negative more than a quarter of the time, often depicting older adults in isolated situations or as the recipients of care?
The spread of negative portrayals worsens ageism and contributes to low self-esteem, poor health, and depression, which costs $63 billion in health care per year. Learn more from the recent Alive Ventures campaign.
We believe aging is a personal, positive journey
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.
