A few topics we study include:

  • Family Caregiver Needs Assessment and Program Development. Family caregivers play a vital role in the US healthcare long term service and support systems–we are working to identify and develop innovative community-based solutions to better support family caregivers of older adults with complex care needs.
  • Measurement Development and Validation. How do we identify important health-related outcomes? How do we measure what matters most for improving community participation and overall quality of life?
  • Learning about meaningful, productive activities people engage in as they exit the paid workforce.  What type of volunteer or community activities do you participate in? What are factors that may be barriers to your full participation in these meaningful activities?
  • Studying employment issues. Do you struggle with keeping up at work? Do you have health conditions that make participating in paid employment difficult?… What are key factors in promoting workforce participation regardless of these potential barriers? How can we adapt programs, policies, and supports to address current societal needs and demands to promote a diverse, robust workforce?
  • Finding ways to promote healthy aging through health policy and advocacy. Exploring both clinical rehabilitation, community-based, and health policy solutions to promote health aging for all!
