Business

The consumer marketplace for aging is a booming one, what with the baby boomer cohort turning age 65 at a rapid clip. But Business & Aging at ASA means something more: We analyze and advise on retirement trends, ageism in marketing and workforce issues. How long should we work and will there be enough of a caregiving workforce to take care of us as we age? You’ll find thoughts on these questions, as well as perspectives on smart retirement planning, the complexities of long-term-care insurance  and recareering and many other such transitions in later life. The business of aging is our business, so check in here for the latest information and news.

This upcoming symposium will be the first part of an exciting endeavor that involves the planning of five biennial symposia on elder abuse over ten years. The mission of the USC Judith D. Tamkin Symposium is to create safe and healthy environments for all elders, here and across the world, by bringing thought leaders, activists, caregivers, researchers, lawmakers, and other stakeholders together to share findings, strategize solutions, and help shape and propel the field of elder abuse. This inaugural symposium entitled “Closing the Gaps in Elder Abuse Research” will focus on academic issues such as definitions, research strategies, functional neuroimaging, and novel collaborations. Our goal is to find solutions to some of the challenges that have plagued this area of research for at least 20 years.

This May we are honoring Older Americans as part of the Administration on Community Living’s annual Older Americans Month celebration. In the spirit of sharing our initiatives and ideas that are positively affecting older adults, I’m excited to focus on a special initiative of NCRC’s National Neighbors Silver, which focuses efforts on working with banks and financial institutions to implement Age-Friendly Banking.
