Dr. Joanne Lynn Speaks on the Eldercare Crisis

No comments

Politico interviewed Dr. Joanne Lynn to learn how much strain younger Americans face as their elders age, and were surprised to learn that immigration could ease the crisis.

The aging of the Baby Boom generation will triple the number of Americans over age 80 — a bulge demographers have seen coming for decades. Yet, American families and the healthcare system have taken almost no steps to prepare for a coming national crisis in caregiving.

You can watch a video of Politico’s interview with Dr. Lynn.

Dr. Lynn is the Director of the Center for Elder Care and Advanced Illness at Altarum Institute.”
