The Graying Of America: Implications For Health Professionals
Elderly; Elderly poor and homeless; Long-term health care
Demographic projections confirm a dramatic increase in the size of America's elderly population over the next several decades. The elderly now comprise 13% of the population; by 2045, they will comprise 22%. As the elderly population grows, so too will the elderly poor, the elderly homeless, and the elderly uninsured. The implications of the so-called graying of America for the health care system, particularly the long-term care industry, are staggering. © 2005 Springer Publishing Company.
