Martha Talks Eldercare with Diane Sawyer
Martha Stewart recently took part in a round-table discussion about aging and caregiving for the elderly on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer. In the coming decade, more than 70-million Americans will enter into retirement, creating what has been coined a "grey tsunami" - a tidal-wave of aging people that is expected to strain both the healthcare system and, in turn, the families who are caring for these aging relatives. Martha was joined by Virginia Morris, author of How to Care for Aging Parents, and noted geriatricians Neil Resnick and Marie Bernard. Martha, of course, is founder of the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, a center devoted to geriatric wellness that was founded in honour of her mother, Martha Kostyra, who passed away several years ago at the age of 93.
