Geriatric Care in America

How long would you like to live? Have you made plans for your health care or will you depend on your family to help you through your final years. Tonight’s FRONTLINE program, “Living Old,” examines the fastest growing segment of America’s population – those over the age of 85 – and how the medical community is facing the challenge of caring for millions of elderly who are living longer and longer each year. We’ll spend this hour with one of the program’s producers Miri Navasky, and Dr. Craig Rubin, chair of Geriatrics at U.T. Southwestern Medical Center.

FRONTLINE “Living Old,” airs at 9pm tonight on KERA 13.
