How Old is Old? New Perspectives on Aging and Eldercare Services

By Karen Alexander

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Summer 2007

The author explores definitions of aging and of being 'old', given modern advances in health care which allow American Baby Boomers to anticipate retirements which may last as long as thirty years. She further discusses Jewish communal responses to aging trends, using the Jewish community of MetroWest, NJ as an example of services provided.
