Researching and creating Ways to Age WellSM

Empowering the professionals who impact the lives of older adults

Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging was created in 1999 as a way to expand the impact of Mather LifeWays by utilizing applied research to improve programs for senior living and community-residing older adults.

Reaching older adults by using our passion and partnerships

The Institute has partnered with a number of community organizations, academic institutions, health care organizations, and corporations in research endeavors. These partnerships are built on a solid foundation of education and experience, and reinforced with a passion for understanding aging issues. The goal of these endeavors is to equip senior living professionals with best practices and innovative techniques to better serve older adults.

The following are just a few of our recent projects and partnerships:
