The Benjamin Rose Institute
on Aging

A nationally recognized leader addressing the most important issues of aging through service, research and advocacy

The Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging is a national leader pursuing innovation in practice and policy to address the important issues of aging. As a champion for older adults, Benjamin Rose works to advance their health, independence and dignity. The organization has established itself as a trusted resource for people who counsel, care for and advocate on behalf of older adults.

Since its beginnings more than 100 years ago in 1908, Benjamin Rose has built a Cleveland-based nonprofit into a nationally recognized research organization, a highly regarded service provider known for caring for people with complex, long-term needs, and a policy-driven advocate bringing information from around the country to the larger network of agencies serving older adults in the Greater Cleveland community.

The state-of-the-art Conference Center at Benjamin Rose hosts educational programming that is responsive to the evolving demands of an aging population.
