The foundation has been involved in policy discussions regarding healthcare for older adults and coordinating services both for older adults and their caregivers.

Earlier this year, the foundation created a spinoff venture named Alive Ventures. The startup studio will focus on imagining and building companies, products and services to help older adults live and work.
