Through initiatives in creativity and aging and access to encore careers MetLife Foundation is working to keep older adults connected and productive. The Foundation's caregiving and aging in place initiatives provide them with the support they need to share their experience and expertise with the community.

Participation in the arts can improve the health and well-being of older adults. The program helps community arts education providers better serve older adults and raise public awareness about the benefits of lifelong engagement in the arts. See website
