With longer lifespans, shifting demographics, and changing social and economic conditions, what is the future of aging? This session will map the landscape and identify some of the challenges we face as an aging society—from health and wellbeing to housing and communities. Most importantly, the opportunities and upsides of a multi-generational society will be discussed, along with how we can progress toward a better future for all.
Led by Lauren Dunning, Director of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging, and Caroline Servat who serves as the Associate Director.
Longer lifespans and shifting demographics mean that we have the opportunity to reimagine the future of aging. While there are challenges in an aging society, including related to health care and long-term care, there are upsides, as well. By taking into account the wants and needs of older adults and leveraging the advancements made possible by technology, we can change the way we build communities, deliver care, and create connections to foster wellbeing for generations to come.
