Everyday 10,000 Americans turn 65.
Per the US Census Bureau, there were 76 million people born between the years 1946 and 1964, the traditional window for the baby boom generation. That means they will reach 65 over a 19-year period. The US Census Bureau estimated by 2030, more than 20% of the US population will be over 65. By 2050, the surviving baby boomers will be over 85.
The physical, social, and mental health needs of an aging population are the focus of much dialogue at local, state and federal levels. How will society handle the growing needs of our communities?
