Imagine a World where older adulthood is understood as a pinnacle stage of life.
➡️ Where older adulthood is understood as a pinnacle stage of life.
➡️ Where outdated expectations of demise and diminishment have fallen away and life for elders is that of participation, wellbeing and choice.
➡️ Where systems value their wisdom, invest in their health, and build infrastructure to support the diversity of their lives.
➡️ And imagine still that caregiving for older adults has become supported, a privilege, an activity of many rather than of too few.
That day is dawning. Innovation and partnership are here.
From living rooms to board rooms, we're moving age forward.
