Senior population to continue growing
America’s senior population will grow by more than 50 percent in the next 15 years.
Americans are living longer lives, but they are also living sicker lives as more and more senior citizens grapple with preventable chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
On Wednesday, the United Health Foundation will release a national ranking on senior health care. To find out where NC ranks, visit http://www.americashealthrankings.org/.
