America is growing older. The implications and costs of this extraordinary demographic shift are now upon us. In the public arena, every day brings hand-wringing from leaders in government and business over the increasing strains on social safety nets and health-care systems. On a personal level, we want to know where we'll live, how we'll take care of ourselves, and whether we'll enjoy meaning and dignity as we age. How should we respond to the aging of America? Of course, there are societal and personal challenges that may seem daunting and must be addressed. But it's not all dire news. Aging Americans want to remain healthy, active, engaged, and contributing members of society. They represent not only a challenge but also an opportunity - the chance to build a better and stronger America. Across the country, leaders are developing exciting solutions to enable successful aging.
