From the abstract:
The challenges of baby boomers reaching old age, combined with a growing, more diverse population, will drive major changes, challenges and decisions in U.S. families, workplaces and communities, according to New Realities of an Older America: Challenges, Changes and Questions, a new report from the Stanford Center on Longevity.

The implications concern the entire society – young and old alike. Even though many of these changes could have been anticipated, the United States has continued to rely on social and economic policies and practices that were designed for a more youthful population. New Realities of an Older America frames the critical issues and underscores the urgency of effectively addressing the anticipated challenges with relevant public policies.
