In the U.S., 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 each day. Are you prepared to grow old? How can you avoid outliving your resources? Can you maintain your independence? In this one-hour special, Seattle Channel presents a guide to navigating the challenges of aging in Seattle. In three vignettes, we look at what it means to live alone, with a caregiver, and in an assisted-care facility. We also hear from a panel of aging and senior-issues experts about trends in healthcare, local resources and the complex matters to consider when caring for a senior parent or family member.
