Video: Healthy Aging—The Jewish Philanthropic Response

Advances in medicine, technology and lifestyle allow more adults to grow older in their own homes. For those too fragile, the next wave of skilled nursing facilities provides both a sense of community and comfort for those who must leave familiar surroundings. How can the Jewish philanthropic community propel these and other advances in caring for our parents as well as for our future selves?

In this informative webinar from Jewish Home Lifecare, in partnership with JFN, you'll hear from experts about how to raise awareness in technology, research, housing and other developments that enable older adults to live out their years at home or in a "deinstitutionalized" community setting. You'll also learn more about the role Jewish philanthropy can play to help these advances take root.
