Research has shown that remaining socially engaged improves the quality of life for older adults and is associated with better health. n4a recently received a grant from the Administration for Community Living (ACL) to establish the National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults to support the Aging Network's role in fostering social engagement of older adults through intergenerational programming, utilization of technology, participation in the arts, encouraging lifelong learning and involvement in volunteerism.
