In the next 25 years, the number of people over the age of 65 is set to double. Life expectancy is creeping up and experts expect 110 to be the average age people live to by the year 2030. And, seniors will soon outnumber children under the age of 5.
This growing senior population brings with it all types of challenges. Parenting Your Parents Resource Guide is designed to help our viewers find resources, connect with local agencies and provide expert advice on issues that you might be facing either now or in the future.
