AARP Survey Reveals Boomers' Health Care Needs in Delaware

AARP, Other Industry Leaders Convene for Forum

WILMINGTON, Del., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- AARP announced today the release of a survey of Delawareans ages 50-64, that reveals concerns regarding health care access and affordability. AARP presented the study and convened a forum to discuss health care needs and disparities in Delaware. View Delaware Health Care: A Study of Challenges, A Case for Change at

The key survey findings show that controlling costs and improving access to health care are Delawareans' foremost concerns.

Opinion leaders representing Delaware's corporate, non-profit, social service, and governmental agencies presented a wide range of data and information. Throughout the discussion, the panelists quickly came to a consensus that there is an urgent need for health care reform.
Some key messages that participants took away from the event included:

-- Health care reform is a national issue. AARP is the convener of forums

such as this one all across America. The message has been consistent -

serious problems await the nation in approximately ten years. According

to Medicaid in Delaware, by 2011, the first wave of boomers (born 1946-

1964) will turn 65. Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security needs will

double by 2035. Long term care is very expensive and will be in great

demand as boomers age. Federal funding will be a key element to

solutions to the health care crisis.

-- Prevention is the key to long-term improvement of health care

difficulties. AARP's message confirmed that issues affecting its

members 50+ cross over into all ages. Chronic disease such as arthritis

and diabetes are overwhelming much of today's health system, and

healthy habits that begin in childhood are the key to lifetime health.
