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.

"Another aspect of importance in geriatric care that was not mentioned, but is on the upswing is Medical House Calls.  Attention needs to be given to promoting education of physicians and nurse practitioners in the specific apects of developing an effective an encompasing House Calls program in any PCP medical home that serves a significant portion of aging patients."

"Informative. When the Medicare system was devised, the families were large creating the potential for a large number of contributors, self-sustaining the system. The invention of easily managed contraception, abortion options, and elective smaller family sizes in many cultures have all contributed to a smaller work base supporting the retired. It will be interesting to see what our society will do going forward with our beloved but costly aging baby boomers."
