Our Aging Population

We are getting older. Baby boomers cringe when “their” music is highlighted on the oldies station. They may be young at heart but they also have heart disease and high cholesterol. Walkers, canes, and residential care are just around the corner. Are the baby boomers ready?

According to Don Burrows, author of Plan While You Still Can, baby boomers have worked hard to save for their retirement but have done little to plan for end of life events.  If you are healthy and trying to “stay ahead of the curve” or are currently evaluating long-term care for a loved one, you need to think about, talk about and plan your “final” decisions.

Start the dialogue, open the forum for discussion. There is no time like the present.
