Editorial Counsels Governor To Address Long-Term Care
"Sadly but predictably, California is woefully ill-prepared to roll with [the] 'silver tsunami,' a demographic flood of aging baby boomers," a Sacramento Bee editorial states. The editorial discusses a Little Hoover Commission report that "calls for a less bureaucratic, more streamlined and better coordinated continuum of care" for elderly residents. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) "needs to read" the report and "stop by an adult day care center," the Bee adds, concluding, "If he did so, he'd â¦ perhaps make a higher priority of ensuring that California seniors less fortunate than himself can lead a dignified, healthful life in their latter years."
