Len Kaye, University of Maine professor of social work and director of the UMaine Center on Aging, was interviewed for the July 2012 issue of the national Health Workforce Information Center website. He discussed what many consider an inadequacy in the nation’s healthcare system to serve the onslaught of baby boomers who will turn 65 and retire this year. Of the 78 million boomers in society today, 10,000 are retiring each day, according to Kaye,
who explained how UMaine’s social work curriculum and the Center on Aging are preparing students to accommodate the needs of a healthier, more active, outspoken and affluent elders.
