As a global community of innovators focused on improving the lives of older adults around the world, we are collectively passionate about connecting older adults and their families to resources that can help during these unprecedented times. Going forward, we plan to share resources and solutions to help older adults stay HOME, HEALTHY and HOPEFUL

  1. Recognizing that this situation is extremely dynamic, the way we approach the challenges and solutions will continue to evolve. With that in mind, we want to hear from you about your innovation priorities and existing solutions for COVID-19. We will use the results to focus the global community around priority topics and share relevant innovations and best practices. 
    1. Considering the people in our care, the businesses we run, the societies we live in - what are the critical topics that need attention in order to be resilient and adaptive during this pandemic? Share your priorities here: https://bit.ly/aging2covid19priorities
