AbstractThe “Age Wave” demographic shift has arrived. Every day, approximately 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65. In addition, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reported in 2013 that more than 44.7 million people are age 65 and older, representing a 24.7 percent increase since 2003. This changing landscape raises a variety of issues, including how best to support our elders. Many working Baby Boomers are caring for parents in their 80s and 90s. And, younger workers are caring for those in their 60s and 70s who have health problems.
