Is the United States prepared for the Baby Boomers to grow old?
This book seeks to answer these questions. It also suggests
strategies to make sure that the answer to these questions becomes
Much has been written about the Baby Boom generation but this is
the first book to address current issues they face while
simultaneously projecting ahead to challenges and benefits that are
likely to characterize this next generation of older persons. It is
based on keynote presentations by noted leaders in the field of
aging, who discuss their expectations of their old age. Thus, it is
both an introductory primer to aging today as well as a book that
raises questions, suggests solutions, and indicates avenues of
planning for the future.
The book takes a close look at the state of readiness of health
and social service providers for the large numbers of older persons
in society's future. A careful look is taken at what is and what
might be in the areas of income security, health security and
health care, long-term care, and housing and living arrangements.
The importance of this book lies in the fact that it addresses the
lack of planning by both the Baby Boomers and services providers,
and identifies steps to be taken, with particular emphasis given to
needed changes in the education of health and social service
professionals to prepare them for what lies ahead.
