What is Age Friendly?

Age-Friendly Health Systems is an initiative of The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), in partnership with the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA), designed to meet this challenge head-on.

Age-Friendly Health Systems aims to:
Follow an essential set of evidence-based practices;
Cause no harm; and
Align with What Matters to the Older adult and their Family Caregivers
