Aging Well Never Grows Old
Growing older is a constant we all share. To ensure that people in their later years are economically secure, can access quality health care, and have opportunities to make meaningful contributions to their communities, Atlantic invested in organizations focused on the needs of older adults, especially the most disadvantaged and vulnerable. We also have worked to help create age-friendly policies.
Our Work Across Ireland and the United States
Steps We’ve Taken to Help Older Adults Enjoy a Secure, Healthy and Long Life
Here are the ways we’ve focused our grantmaking to serve the needs of older adults:
Atlantic has supported research to better understand the needs of an aging population.
Palliative care provides great comfort and we have worked to make it widely available.
We've helped people with dementia get needed care while living at home, connected to family and community. The Global Brain Health Institute supports efforts to improve the practice of dementia care.
Age-Friendly Communities & Policies
Atlantic advocated for adoption of age-friendly policies and practices that recognize older individuals as people who still have much to contribute to society.
