Aging & Long-Term Care
As we age, our relationship to health and medicine changes.
IHPS researchers conduct research on aging and the health and well-being of older people to understand the experience of aging and changing needs for care. We investigate experiences and needs of older adults receiving care in the home, community, hospital, and long-term care settings. Long-term care research looks at how care is provided to individuals who need help with activities of daily living such as bathing or dressing, often in an assisted living or nursing home facility.
