To do this, we need to reframe aging – changing not only the words we use but also shifting the conditions that hold problems in place. This work isn’t easy, and it’s not accomplished quickly. It takes time to build deep trust and develop successful collaborations.
The stories in this year’s annual report celebrate our grantees’ accomplishments while honoring their perseverance and spirit of ingenuity.
They are stories of reframing and reimagining: One shows how redefining systems can create more economic security for our neighbors. Another demonstrates the power of advocating for policies and services that are relevant and meet today’s needs. And still another proves an inclusive approach can reinvigorate cities and towns.
Older people are front and center in these stories, representing a new way of thinking, a paradigm shift.
Their stories inspire and encourage us. We hope they do the same for you.
