ABC News Special Series on Eldercare with Diane Sawyer

On January 31, 2011, “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” launched a special series, focusing on the issues surrounding eldercare.  The first of the series was a roundtable discussion on the subject with Virginia Morris, author of “How to Care for Aging Parents”; businesswoman Martha Stewart, who partnered with Mount Sinai to open an eldercare center in 2007; and noted geriatricians Neil Resnick and Marie A. Bernard.

The group discussed everything from medication to driving to the stress that’s placed on caregivers.

ABC’s website makes reference to the well known facts that, “The country is approaching a “silver tsunami,” as millions of families reach a new stage of life. According to AARP, there are almost 66 million family caregivers in the United States — nearly 30 percent of the entire U.S. population. Seven out of 10 care for older adults.”
