Back in 1999, I first heard Dr. Ken Dychtwald (President and CEO of Age Wave) speak about the unprecedented impact that Baby Boomers will make (read: are now making) on aging in America. Please take the time to watch this fascinating video of his keynote address in March of this year at the American Society on Aging conference in Chicago.
It is the realization of these startling demographics that led me to write my 2006 book on advance directives and to recently update that book. My 2015 Edition - The practical guide to Health Care Advance Directives will be available very soon!
