Elder Care

April 18, 2013

With the nation’s 78 million baby boomers reaching retirement the medical community is bracing for a wave of patients needing special care. In April, Health Matters will focus on the elderly and the challenges doctors will face in the coming decades. Our panel brings their expertise in geriatrics with advice on staying healthy and treating the diseases that often come later in life. Plus the difficult decision to put a loved one in a nursing home. It’s an important hour dedicated to taking your calls on elder care.
