The New York Times: The Fragile Patchwork Of Care For New York’s Oldest Old Growth In Elderly Population Spurs Concerns About Lack Of Caregivers And Services The Wall Street Journal and New York Times offer articles analyzing the challenges seniors face. The Wall Street Journal: Communities Struggle To Care For Elderly, Alone At Home center_img More elderly across the nation are aging at home for a variety of reasons: they prefer to and are healthy enough to stay; they can’t afford other options such as assisted living; and states in some cases have imposed policies to limit nursing home stays paid for by Medicaid, which is a major funder of long-term institutional health care for older Americans. But aging in place is proving difficult in places where the population is growing older, supportive services are scarce, houses are in disrepair and younger people who can assist have moved away.
