Long term care crisis? Uh, what crisis?

Where do the presidential candidates stand on the long-term care crisis? To judge from their lack of public comment, one concludes that either (1) they don't know there is a crisis; or (2) there is no political edge to be gained from addressing it. After all, Pres. Obama's CLASS Act - a bold yet flawed attempt to deal with spiraling long-term care costs for up-and-coming retirees - ultimately ended up in the legislative dust bin.

The aging of the Baby Boom generation is financially devastating more and more American middle class families, and putting enormous pressures on our national and local resources. But the issue of long-term care remains largely ignored in this presidential election.

Dementia care homes Kent
