America is aging at a rapid rate with 10,000 people in the U.S. turning 65 every day. Medicare is expected to include 80 million enrollees by 2040. The vast majority of this growing population will likely face multiple losses - spouse, partner, independence, identity - and complex medical care needs. How can mental health professionals, healthcare providers, clergy, bereavement counselors, and the wider community support the growing number of aging Americans through their losses and healthcare challenges in later life? Aging America panelists will integrate their expertise to deliver an in-depth discussion on innovative programs and new approaches to support older adults.
