3.) Baby Boomers’ Impact on Healthcare: High Demands, Expectations Met with a Healthy Dose of Prevention

Baby boomers have practically achieved cult status. As the first of the post-World War II generation turns 60 this year, the media has been recounting their preferences in everything from music to parenting to lifestyles. Boomers are depicted as an educated, financially secure bunch, redefining retirement as they care for aging parents and launch second careers. Job-wise, they’re having the last laugh: employers who shunned the older worker 20 years ago now recast work schedules and job descriptions to woo boomers back to work. But the picture wouldn’t be complete without some sobering statistics, particularly when it comes to the healthcare needs of boomers.
