Abstract: AARP recently predicted yet another potential conflict in the future of long-term care in America. By 2030 there will only be 4 possible caregivers available for every individual 80 years of age or older, compared to 2010 when there were 7 for each elderly individual. As a result there will be lower levels of availability and fewer options when it comes to caregivers. This is partially due to the fact that baby boomers had fewer children than other generations, and therefore won’t have the same possibilities when it comes to familial care. Additionally, baby boomers have been providing most of the long-term care in America. It is estimated that unpaid care from baby boomers to aged populations in 2009 totaled somewhere around $450 billion dollars.
