“Midlife Crisis? How About a Late-Life Crisis,” by Marc Agronin, Wall Street Journal

“Enter the late-life crisis as a trend I am seeing increasingly in my geriatric psychiatry practice, in which individuals in their 70s through 90s are wrestling with existential questions that eluded their psyches during middle-aged years of active work, love and play. Now, facing a true twilight of illness, disability and loss, all hell can sometimes break loose in these older lives.”

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