Healthcare & Aging

Physical Health

The United States’ healthcare system is a moving target topic: it’s consistently in the political crosshairs and it’s a complex landscape—hard for most everyone to grasp, including people who specialize in and work in the aging services network. But at ASA we have expert members weighing in on a regular basis about what’s going on with the Affordable Care Act, and what’s the latest when it comes to Medicare, Medicaid and those who are dually eligible for both. How are people working to fix transitions between hospital and home? How can we help elders manage their medications? Where are all the new doctors and nurses for our burgeoning aging populace going to come from? How can our country handle the expected number of people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias? The issues of aging, and how elders will be cared for are huge, and we have a wealth of material on them—constantly updated material, as befits the fluidity of the subject
