Advantages of Evidence-Based Programs

Learn More

Evidence-based programs provide an ideal model for giving older adults information and support. Evidence-based programs can add value in many ways.  First, they can significantly improve the health and well-being of older adults in the community. Second, they can help attract new participants and funders through innovative programming. Third, they can create powerful partnerships with other organizations, including health care providers. 

In short, evidence-based programming provides value because:

  • Funders increasingly demand that programming be based on solid evidence.
  • Agency leaders want to concentrate limited resources on proven programs.
  • Older adults are looking for programs that have been proven to work.

Ultimately, evidence-based programs represent a thoughtful way to use limited resources to enhance social good.  Learn more about where to find evidence-based programs for older adults.
