“Aging in America: Crisis in long-term care”

Aging in America: Crisis in long-term care,” CBS News


“There are currently about 40 million Americans over the age of 65, and those over 80 are the fastest-growing segment of our population. Rita Braver reports on a group of seniors who have banded together and found a way to make their golden years not just affordable, but truly ‘golden.’”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):

This moving story is a bit dated and certainly naïve to suggest the “Villages” movement will fix long-term care. It also shows how little progress has been made in the nearly three years since it aired. Thanks to Jeff Drake of Center-corporate-member OneAmerica for the link to this video.
