We are on the verge of a major demographic shift. According to the CDC, by 2030, the number of older Americans will have more than doubled to 70 million, or one in every five Americans. This growing
number of older adults will place increasing demands on family caregivers and medical and social services. Today's newsletter focuses on issues related to aging and geriatric mental health.
