Social Security for Baby Boomers
Some call it "The Silver Avalanche", I have also heard it described as the "Silver Tsunami". Either way, it will take a financial toll on our Social Security system.
On a cloudy day in 1945, a military vessel pulls into port and empties on to the shores. World War II has ended and The Great Depression is over. The country is stable and happy. Needless to say there were some very happy and healthy reunions. For the next couple decades, more babies were born than any generation that came before.
As you come to grips with an Alzheimer’s or other dementia diagnosis,
you may be dealing with a whole range of emotions and concerns. You’ll
no doubt be worried about how your loved one will change, how you’ll
keep him or her comfortable, and how much your life will change. You’ll
also likely be experiencing emotions such as anger, grief, and shock.
Adjusting to this new reality is not easy. It’s important to give
yourself some time and to reach out for help. The more support you have,
the better you will be able to help your loved one.
