In the January-February 2018 Issue of Aging Today

The In Focus Section of the January–February 2018 issue of Aging Today tackles the thorny and ever evolving issue of immigration, and its impact on citizens, documented and undocumented older adults, and elders cared for by immigrants. An overview by Lisa Eckenwiler looks at the topic from the vantage point of justice and ethics; María Cariello and Eulimar Nuñez illustrate the very personal toll new laws take on elders left behind after deportation; and Stephen Campbell analyzes the effects of current immigration policies on the direct care worker pipeline.

Elsewhere in the issue, Lori Smetanka of the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care reviews recent responses to natural disasters in nursing homes and posits better plans; Michael Adams of SAGE and ASA Board Chair Bob Blancato weigh in on the controversial “Cake Case” and what it means for LGBT equality, and Aging Today talks with Jessica Bruder about Nomadland, her new book on older adult itinerant workers.
