Designing Health linkAges

Adding Insight to Aging-in-Community

Healthy aging is not just about managing chronic disease, it is truly about quality of life, vitality, and sense of well-being. In America, loneliness affects nearly half of all older Americans, and that half has a significantly higher mortality than the non-lonely half. LinkAges (“link across the generations”) is a modular community-based social support system designed to help older adults successfully age-in-community. The program leverages technology and cross-generational social interactions to combat social isolation and mitigate their adverse health effects.
