The aging of America moves us into a new phase of our national life, with profound implications for individuals, families, & society. Understanding the dichotomy between an independent, active later life & one that is characterized by frailty & dependence is what research on aging is all about. The research program pursued by the Nat. Inst. on Aging covers a broad range of issues & concerns. Aimed at improving the quality of life for older people & their families, research is focused in 4 general areas -- the biology of aging; reducing disease & disability; Alzheimer’s & cognitive changes; & the behavioral & social aspects of aging. This document describes some of what researchers know & what they have yet to find out about growing older. Illustrations.
