Purpose

The third breakfast in Senator Krueger's Roundtable Series for Boomers and Seniors this year will feature speakers on "What to Do With All That Stuff," the issues surrounding home clutter and hoarding prevention for the elderly, as part of this year's Roundtable Series focus on "The Challenges of Longevity."

In the past century, U.S. life expectancy at birth has climbed from 47 to 77 years, and according to some statistics the average life span today may be as high as 85 years. America's 78 million baby boomers began turning 65 last year at a rate of one every 10 seconds (3 million to 4 million per year). By the middle of the next decade, the U.S. will become a society with more Americans over age 60 than under age 15. Seniors, families, healthcare and social services professionals, and the community at large will all need to learn, adapt, and adjust to the new and unique issues raised by the overall age increase in the population.

The Roundtable Series meets once a month over a five-month period. This month's session will take place on Thursday, January 24, from 8:30 am – 10:30 am at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, 331 East 70th Street.
