    Our economic system isn’t working for the vast majority to provide for these elder care issues. Adult children have been scattered across the nation to access employment and can’t afford to be “home” for care coordination etc.

    Beyond the practical advice on day to day issues for individuals and their families we as a society need to plan for ALL of us.Your thoughts?
