The Vibrant Communities of ReAge

October 16, 2012

The senior years can be the best years of an individual’s life. I see evidence of this truth every day in our senior housing communities. It’s all about embracing what is still possible from forging new relationships, to learning new skills, to simply enjoying interests that may have taken a back burner earlier in life. In my role as executive director at Orchard Cove, I support our residents to renew, reinvent and rediscover their interests while living a life reflective of an engaging and healthy lifestyle. It’s important at any stage to set, and plan a course to achieving one’s goals.

Hebrew SeniorLife Takes on Aging in America

See how we are redefining what it means to age

Today, our nation is entering uncharted territory. An unprecedented number of seniors will want, need, and deserve more services than are currently available. Coupled with the increased need for services are rising expectations that reflect a desire and determination to live senior years to their fullest. This new reality makes our commitment to seniors more relevant than ever. We are an organization uniquely qualified to transform the experience of aging in America.

In thinking about how to communicate this commitment, we realized there is no one word to describe everything that Hebrew SeniorLife has done, and continues to do, to redefine aging.

So we invented one—ReAge.

ReAge and Research

ReAge research

Hebrew SeniorLife’s Institute for Aging Research has helped transform the experience of aging in America through innovative studies. Our researchers have deconstructed many of the myths about what it means to age, replacing those notions with realities based on sound scientific inquiry. They have shed new light on the mechanical, physiological, and biochemical functions, as well as environmental factors that contribute to age-related conditions and decline.

Revolutionizing and Redefining Aging at Hebrew SeniorLife

ReAge

You may have noticed that we’ve been using a new word at Hebrew SeniorLife to refer to our unique efforts to transform aging. That word is ReAge. ReAge is a combination of the words “redefining” and “aging.” It represents our commitment to “question everything about the aging process by challenging conventions to create a new standard-of-care approach that will positively impact the lives of older adults.”

Our commitment to ReAge extends to all pillars of service at Hebrew SeniorLife—health care, communities, research and teaching. We are redefining how aging looks and feels and tackling important issues such as how we treat, understand and prevent common health issues that stem from aging.
