The Globe Made It Sound Like All of Our Seniors are Living Like the 1% and That Ticked Me Off

The Boston Globe Magazine wrote in its 1/31/16 issue of a Massachusetts building boom of senior care communities targeted essentially at the “1%.” You can see that article here.

I was ticked off at the tone of the article, to say the least. The author talks about the high-end senior living communities that developers are building in Eastern Massachusetts, because, well, some seniors through a combination of work and luck have accumulated that kind of wealth. The fact is, most Massachusetts seniors are patching together a network of care and services and doing their best to stay at home. The Globe Magazine published my comment, which you can read here.

The country needs a more comprehensive network of services for seniors, and Massachusetts needs to lead the way.
