Your Call: How should we take care of our elders?



 On the February 20th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with the National Domestic Workers Alliance Ai-jen Poo about her new book The Age of Dignity: Preparing for the Elder Boom in a Changing America. Every day, 10,000 people turn 65. By the year 2050, 27 million Americans will need some form of long-term care or assistance. How are we preparing for the Elder Boom in the US?  Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
