As a result of the Precipitating Events Project (PEP) and other research conducted by the Yale Center on Aging/ Pepper Center, we now realize that age is only a proxy for other factors that lead to disability, and that some of these factors can be modified to reduce the risk of disability. In fact, disability rates have been steadily declining among older adults for decades.
