    We are in the midst of rapid change to our society, our structures, our norms, our daily routines and our expectations for the future. Gerontology teaches us that aging, or living, is a holistic experience that includes our physical, psychological, social and spiritual health. All of these aspects of health are intertwined and what affects one will affect all other areas of our life.

    Evolution: From Age Wave to Longevity Project
    Jan 13, 2020

    Co-led by Senior Connections, The Capital Area Agency on Aging, and VCU Gerontology, the Longevity Project for a greater Richmond (formerly called Age Wave) has a mission to make our region a great place for all people to grow old. We work to create communities that are Engaged, Livable, Stable, and Well for all ages. Our understanding is evolving and we want our language and vision to reflect this shift. When we embarked on the development of the Greater Richmond Age Wave Coalition the emphasis was on the numbers. Now, ten plus years into this adventure we are learning daily that there are important messages missing from this numbers narrative.
