Summary
"For the first time in American history, those over 85 are now the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. Medical advances have enabled an unprecedented number of Americans to live longer, healthier lives. But for millions of elderly, living longer can also mean a debilitating physical decline that often requires an immense amount of care. And just as more care is needed, fewer caregivers are available to provide it. This documentary, produced by Frontline, investigates this national crisis and explores the new realities of aging in America. Vast numbers of the elderly are living lives that neither they nor their families ever prepared for or imagined. Through the perspectives of the elderly, their families and the doctors and nurses who care for them, this documentary explores the modern realities of aging in both urban and rural America.
