Who Will Care for Us?: Aging and Long-Term Care in a Multicultural America
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungAmerica is getting older. By the year 2010, almost one in five Americans will be sixty-five or older. The population of the United States is not only aging, but aging rapidly. The combined forces of low fertility and longer life spans have resulted in a disproportionate increase in the number of Americans over sixty-five and an even faster increase in the proportion of those over eighty-five.
