Aging

Expertise

By 2030, 1 in 5 Americans—72 million people—will be ages 65 and older. This fact adds urgency to answering the question of how to make the golden years more comfortable for all older adults.

At JBS, we’re tackling this challenge across a range of topics: exercise and physical activity. Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, disability, elder care, community engagement of older people, treatment for prescription drug abuse and mental health issues.

JBS has been involved in aging-related issues for more than 20 years. For example, since the early 1990s, we’ve been a behind-the-scenes partner of the National Institute on Aging.

Our experts support NIA’s daily communications in several ways. We provide bilingual information and referrals focused on healthful aging, issues facing older adults and their caregivers, and Alzheimer’s disease. We manage the institute’s Web sites, develop databases, and reach out to many audiences through social media and other channels. And we create award-winning health information products.
