The North Shore-LIJ Health System sits at the center of a demographic crisis. The generation that developed America’s first planned suburban communities is now rapidly aging in place and living longer than any generation before it.
- More than 2.6 million New York state residents are age 65 or older.
- 68 percent of Americans age 65 or older have two or more long-term, incurable conditions.
- At least 1/4 of this population lives alone.
