The Impact of the Aging Patient Population

With longer life expectancy and improvements in health care, the over 65 patient population continues to rise. As the Baby Boomers age, the cost and need for long-term care will increase, along with the cost of that care. This will have a significant impact on clinicians and long-term care providers as well as patients and their families. Based on current projections, the number of caregivers per aging patient will drop dramatically in the next 15-20 years. Preparation needs to begin now to provide sufficient care for this growing population.
