The Silver Century Foundation has published an article, "Bucking Ageism in Philanthropy."

The blog talks about five organizations that make older people’s lives easier, and talks with Health Affairs about their Aging & Health series. "The John A. Hartford Foundation specializes in “improving the care of older adults,” so its mission happens to match Health Affairs’ well anyway, explains Alan Weil, the journal’s editor in chief.

“Health Affairs is an empirical journal. People are looking for results from experiments or innovations,” Weil says. "And so [JAHF's] interest in innovative care-delivery models fits very well with the kind of papers we like to publish....A 2017 article about an initiative to reduce avoidable, expensive hospitalizations among nursing home residents became the journal’s 10th most read article of the year."
