My friend David Bunnell reported on Unfrazzle (a Blog related to his latest project Unfrazzle - The Family Caregiver's Assistant) about a panel discussion on The Challenge of an Aging Society (April 29, 2013). His report concentrates on Richard Adler's "7 Challenges / Chances of an Aging Society" and provides an excellent summary on the challenges and how the society might use them for the better.
Challenge 1: Reinvent Healthcare
Challenge 2: Reinventing Senior Services
Challenge 3: Reinventing Senior Housing and Long Term Care
Challenge 4: Create Virtual Retirement Communities
Challenge 5: Reinventing Retirement
Challenge 6: Reinventing Life Stages
Challenge 7: Reinvent Social Work
Reading Davids report, I remembered a TEDx session with Richard Adler on the Challenges and Chances of Aging (published last year) - about 25 min., well spend!
