Age Well Study

Conducted in partnership with Northwestern University, this five-year longitudinal study will evaluate the impact of living in a Life Plan Community on residents’ cognitive, physical, and psychosocial health and well-being.

  • 90+ Life Plan Communities have signed up to participate
  • Residents of participating communities will take a survey each year, which monitors attitudes, perceptions, and health
  • Annual results will be provided to participating communities

The study has begun and we are no longer seeking participants. For more information on the study, including details for participating communities, click below.
