Medical advances have enabled an unprecedented number of Americans to live longer and healthier lives, but this new longevity has also had unintended consequences. For millions of Americans, living longer also means chronic illness and a physical decline. Just as the need for care is rising, the number of available caregivers is dwindling. With a healthcare system overburdened, many fear that we are on the threshold of a major crisis in care.

The caretaker

By Linda the loner.

from New York, NY

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Living Old DVD:

Everything on aging is addressed through the trials of the care taker. What about the older adult who is alone and has no caretaker. What kind of planning or future is there?

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Living Old DVD:

Oh my goodness, what a great documentary. I watched this with my sis (we're both over 65) and we loved every moment. And it gave us the perfect opportunity to pause it and discuss and decide what we're going to do before we get older.
I higly recommend that young folks watch it too. So, when will there be Vol II?

Emotional, Insightful, Helpful

By Bobbi

from near Boston, MA

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Living Old DVD:

In a clear, direct, kind style, this is a film for the caregivers of elders to learn more communication techniques, insights to the minds of those we can only hope to completely know,and tips for reasonable goals when advocating for healthcare desires. Start a family or class discussion with these participants as they live the realities.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Living Old DVD:

I plan to use this in a course on Gerontology. It is a realistic, unvarnished view of the challenges and opportunities of growing older.
