The Center for Research on Aging

 

By 2035, Israel's elderly population is projected to increase by almost 80%, a growth that will challenge Israeli society to make appropriate adjustments to its social policies and services to meet the health care, social, and economic needs of this population and their families.  MJB's Center for Research on Aging contributes significantly to national efforts to develop effective policies and services to address these challenges.

 

2018 Research Focus

  • Integrating health care and social services for the elderly and elderly with disabilities

  • Supporting family caregivers

  • Developing technologies for the elderly

  • Data infrastructures
