Course Summary

In the United States the population is aging and, in the coming decades, this trend is anticipated to increase. Between 2010 and 2050, it is expected that there will be a rapid growth in the older age groups. By 2050, the total national population aged 65 and older is predicted to rise rapidly and to reach 88.5 million, which is more than two-fold its population in 2010. This growth in the elderly population will far exceed the growth in younger age groups. Aging And Long Term Care is a 3-part series discussing important topics related to aging factors, special disability populations, end-of-life care issues and trends in long-term care.
