Government Plans to Improve The Lives of Seniors

Even though we just celebrated Older Americans Month, the sad fact is that the actual Older Americans Act expired in 2011. Last week, the White House outlined several plans to improve the lives of elderly Americans. Ideas included everything from improving treatment for Alzheimer’s, to carrying on with more training initiatives focused on the elderly for health-care workers, to improving family leave for workers and giving them more flexible hours, to looking for ways to reform Medicare and Medicaid by making sure caregivers are focused on providing the right services.
