This article delineates the current and future trends related to aging in the United
States. The demographic and economic forces outlined are ones that will clearly
challenge health services leaders and policy-makers in the coming decades. Various
policy interventions and strategies currently underway to address the needs of the
aging population are described. Shifts in caregiving patterns, the delivery of long-
term care services, economics, choices in living arrangements, and managed care
programs for the elderly are a few of the issues presented in this article. Health and
human services for the elderly will undergo a profound change as the health system
continues to adapt itself to the demands of an aging society.
