How Will Baby Boomers Age?

By Daniel Reingold

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, January 28, 2002

The author uses statistics about the divorce rate, family size, and economic status of the "Baby Boomer" generation, approximately 80 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964, to analyze what these individuals are seeking for as they age. Based on information about their opinions and lifestyles with regards to sexual rights, drugs, and privacy, the author asserts that the typical nursing home does not fit the wants and needs of these baby boomers. Instead, he introduces the Hebrew Home, for which he serves as Vice President, and describes how it better fits the needs of this generation.
