In a new report, RAND researchers note that more than 88 million Americans will be aged 70 or older by 2050 (up from 40 million in 2010), and a significant percentage of them will be living with dementia, placing financial and mental stress on millions of family caregivers.

Health care workers need to be adequately trained to address this issue -- especially direct-care workers, who provide 70 to 80 percent of hands-on care in long-term care settings, the report says, citing PHI data. [We supported new legislation in Connecticut to provide dementia training to direct-care workers.]

Did you know: A recent study found that 1/3 of Americans between the ages of 45 and 54 have saved nothing for retirement. Check out today's blog by Julia Evans Starr, our executive director, on Connecticut's first steps towards creating a state-sponsored retirement savings plan. The goal is to give private sector workers (who do not participate in any other type of employer-sponsored retirement savings plan) the tools to be able to save for their own retirements.
