Eldercare – as boomers age, will there be enough doctors, nurses and resources?
Baby boomers aren’t babies any more, not by a long shot, but the first of them are entering the stage of life where they may need more intensive and even more expensive care than children. By 2030, seventy million Americans will have turned 65, with those 85 and older making up the nation’s fastest growing age group. With health care reform rolling out, the country is already facing a shortage of doctors and nurses, and the Obama administration is spending half a billion dollars to support the training of health care providers at all levels. However, less attention is being paid to geriatric health issues. How will this wave of elders needing increased attention and care affect a medical system already straining at the seams?
David B. Reuben, MD, Director of the Multicampus Program in Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology, and Chief of the Division of Geriatrics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
