Where will third agers call home?

One aspect of successful longevity that the National Institute on Aging (NIA) is researching is the benefits of aging at home in the community rather than in institutionalized settings. It looks to countries such as Denmark, which spends nearly three-quarters of its funding on supporting people at home and one-quarter on institutional arrangements. It’s a model that’s flipped here, which spends about 87 percent on nursing homes and 13 percent on home care.
