Boomer Watch: Dealing with the Challenges of Aging - Health, Long-term Care and Social Isolation

The US aging population is increasing, and the country is facing potential crisis brought about by increasing number of baby boomers. 10-15 years from now, the rate of people aged 55 years and older will dramatically increase. This is the "silver tsunami" we expected but failed to prepare for it and we are confronted with different challenges. 

One of the challenges the baby boomers have to face is the increasing demand for caregivers as the availability of family caregivers continue to decrease. Not to mention other issues like health and long-term care. 

A collection of the challenges and difficulties people in their prime years face was consolidated and featured in Long Term Care Options. It provides a closer look on other topics such as depression, social isolation and divorce. 

It covers the issues of aging individuals and was consolidated to be featured in the site's Weekly Digest. They have compiled a list of best blogs to provide you with tips and advice on how to deal with the challenges of aging. 

Here's the link to the weekly digest stories:
