Institute on Dignified Aging

The mission of the Institute is to cultivate a sensitive and informed view of aging and old age and to develop services that enable dignified aging and quality life in the community.

The Institute strives particularly to increase the quality and dignity of health and social services and long-term support and care for seniors with reduced or endangered self-sufficiency, and to deepen understanding of important issues surrounding aging and old age.

The Institute provides a venue for interdisciplinary and interprofessional cooperation and for dialogue among health and social services professionals, the academic community, public administrators, and policy-makers concerned about important issues of aging and old age.
