Iowans want to age in place

June 4, 2014
PUBLIC INTEREST

Our nation is aging at a dramatic rate, just as it grew at a dramatic rate between 1946 and 1964 with the birth of the Baby Boomer generation. Currently, Iowa is ranked by the U.S. Census Bureau as number one for the highest percentage of population over age 85 in the United States and number four for population over age 50. Iowa is an aging state, and this trend will persist for the foreseeable future. The issue of how best to offer lower-cost health care with better health outcomes in the patient-preferred setting should be at the center of all aging and health-care policy for years to come.
