The Health Care Poor Elderly

Medical Poverty
Unless there is a dramatic policy shift, a great number of baby boomer women will fall below the poverty line and experience poorer health in their later years. Women typically work for fewer years than men and, when they’re working, earn less than men do. They live longer than their spouses and they live alone.                            
~Paul Hodges (Founding Director of the Global Generations Policy Institute).
