Today, there are more than 46 million older adults age 65 and older living in the U.S. By 2050, that number is expected to grow to almost 90 million. Organizations and facilities providing elder-based care need to be prepared for the impact this growth will create internally and be better suited to handle any organizational issues. Between 2020 and 2030 alone, the time the last of the baby boom cohorts reach age 65, the number of older adults is projected to increase by almost 18 million. The time is now to be SMART about the cultural, generational, and ethical issues around the aging population and the impact on the economy and workforce productivity.
“I am passionate about providing solution-focused and community-based elderly care to maximize social impact. The seniors in our community are the people who have lived and seen this world before us. They have contributed to great things we all benefit from. The elderly have stories to tell and wisdom to share and they should be highlighted as one of the achievements of our society.”
