Can technology close the care gap for Baby Boomers? (Gigaom) – August 26, 2013

“Baby Boomers may be stepping up now to care for aging parents, but when they’re the ones who need the help, there might not be enough people to provide it.”

“According to a report released Monday from the AARP Public Policy Institute, over the next 20 years, as boomers get into their 80s, the number of potential caregivers will drop dramatically. In 2010, there were 7.2 possible caregivers (people aged 45 to 64 years old) for every person over the age of 80. By 2030, the AARP projects that ratio will fall to four to one and, by 2050, they expect it to reach less than three to one.”
