The Center for Research on Aging

Israel is in the midst of a dramatic demographic shift, with the elderly population projected to double over the next 20 years.  This growth is expected to require many adaptations in the health system, social services, labor market, pension system, and the role of elderly people in society.  It will create a significant demand for the expansion of services for this population and their families.  


MJB’s Center for Research on Aging is central to the national effort to develop policies and services to respond to this challenge.  Our research program for 2016 focuses on three major themes:

 

1. The consequences of the aging process and strategies to address it

 

2. Models of integrated care for elderly with complex needs

 

3. Family care for the elderly
