Business

The consumer marketplace for aging is a booming one, what with the baby boomer cohort turning age 65 at a rapid clip. But Business & Aging at ASA means something more: We analyze and advise on retirement trends, ageism in marketing and workforce issues. How long should we work and will there be enough of a caregiving workforce to take care of us as we age? You’ll find thoughts on these questions, as well as perspectives on smart retirement planning, the complexities of long-term-care insurance  and recareering and many other such transitions in later life. The business of aging is our business, so check in here for the latest information and news.

Celebrating the Passage of the Older Americans Act Reauthorization at Day 2 of AiA16

posted 03.22.2016

Day two of the 2016 Aging in America Conference has been overshadowed by the passage of the Older Americans Act reauthorization by the U.S. House of Representatives. And we couldn't be more happy about it. This important piece of legislation is the cornerstone of the services and supports that are vital to older Americas and the individuals who care for them.

Off to Work We Go (Again)… Can Working Longer = Retirement Security?

By Sara E. Rix

Extended employment is going to be a more important component of retirement planning for a growing number of older Americans. With fewer employers offering defined benefit plans or retiree healthcare, do-it-yourself retirement has become the name of the game.

Value-Based Purchasing Creates Opportunities for Effective Partnerships

posted 02.01.2016

By Bruce Chernof

Make no mistake; the healthcare landscape is undergoing a profound transformation, one that will directly impact the future of community-based aging services. For more than 50 years, little has occurred that radically changed the sleepy silos of traditional healthcare delivery and aging services. There have been incremental steps toward change, such as the Special Needs Plans in Medicare or efforts to rebalance Medicaid services through Money Follows the Person. Are these important steps toward more centered care? Yes. Are they radically transformative? No.

Advances in Workplace Protections for Family Caregivers

posted 01.11.2016

By Vicki Shabo

Every day in America, millions of women and men struggle to succeed on the job while caring for an aging parent, an ill spouse, or a child with special needs. Their struggles are evident in workplaces, homes, and care facilities, and during fraught and hurried commutes from one to the other. Nearly everyone in the United States will experience the challenge of either providing or receiving care at some point in their lives, yet our nation fails to ensure access to even basic supports.
