Consumer Information Initiative

With what seems like a world of information at our fingertips, it can be challenging for people of all ages to know what is valid and accurate. Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging's Center for Research and Education is addressing this challenge through our new Consumer Information Initiative.

The Consumer Information Initiative is part of the organization’s ongoing work to be a leader in creating and sharing high-quality, practical information with older people, families and professionals.

Information disseminated through the Consumer Information Initiative focuses on:

  • Maintaining health, wellness, social engagement and active aging
  • Managing chronic health conditions, and/or the demands of caregiving
  • Living as independently as possible in all types of housing or residential settings
  • Making informed decisions associated with age-related life changes, events, challenges and opportunities

To accomplish this goal, we:

  • Plan and host educational Events for professionals, and older people and families
  • Write and circulate both professional and consumer-friendly Publications
  • Develop, test, implement and train professionals to deliver Evidence-Based Programs
  • Disseminate and inventory articles, videos and publications in our Resource Library
