// does status quomake a sound?

An aging infrastructure for an aging America

From the Rockies to the Rustbelt, our team is unpacking the social and political landscape faced by older adults and the human service system built around them.

At the urging of sector leaders, our strategists are compiling research to uncover solutions to the shared challenges of stakeholders and beneficiaries.

The resulting insights will combine human experience and sector expertise to inform systems change.

Programs up and running. Experienced leadership in place. Caring frontline workers. Ready to make an impact? Not so fast—too many organizations use a status quo approach to reaching today’s consumers. As part of our promotion for this report and our ongoing commitment to scalable solutions, we’re engaging thought leaders and service providers across the country. Alongside our partners at the Atlanta Regional Commission, we'll be hosting interactive sessions on applied innovation.

We're all in this together

Our approach is part historical reflection, part sociopolitical analysis, and part exercise in empathy. By taking a comprehensive focus, we aim to answer both sides of the challenge. Downstream, how do we rethink our systems and maximize capacity to support the growing number of older adults? Upstream, how do we modernize policy and change behavior so that future generations can remain independent in later life?

Declining to thriving

By collaborating with state and local decisionmakers, leaders in the aging sector, and systems innovators, we are introducing human-centered design thinking and activating new methods. We have already lead strategic pivots alongside passionate organizations to introduce modern systems and positive narratives. Explore our case studies to discover how we collaborate with changemakers on scalable solutions.
