CJE SeniorLife is unique compared to many other eldercare agencies in that it has an in-house applied research division, the Leonard Schanfield Research Institute. Many of the research projects develop into programs and services that become integrated into CJE’s comprehensive network of programs and services for older adults and their families. An excellent example is the award-winning www.CaregivingHelp.org website which was initiated as a research project but in the course of two years, developed into an interactive online resource for family caregivers managed by CJE’s Center for Healthy Living.
Our experience in the field of aging, our local and nationwide partnerships, and our engagement in hot-button issues in aging all make the Leonard Schanfield Research Institute an important catalyst of innovative social and applied research.
From 2005-2011 the LSRI’s efforts have been focused on the following areas:
We are always open to branching out into other arenas based on an identifiable need and opportunity.
