Please join me and author Angil Tarach-Ritchey RN, GCM, as Angil previews her new book, "Behind the Old Face: Aging in America and the Coming Elder Boom."  

Due to launch later this month (November, 2012), this book includes Angil’s personal experience, stories from aging adults Angil has interviewed, the current climate of eldercare and what she envisions for senior living and care in the future.  In our show, we’ll touch on the fears and challenges in aging as well as what individuals, families and professionals can do to embrace aging in a positive way and promote quality of life in aging.

Here is what two experts have to say about Angil's new book:

“Angil has done a remarkable job illustrating the difficulties facing our seniors today, compelling the reader towards empathy and providing a unique solution to what may be the next major public healthcare debate…the rising cost of caring for our older generations.” − Vesper Patrick | Director, Content Development NurseTogether

"Tarach-Ritchey encourages us to not only reframe our thinking about aging in an empowering way, she also presents us with a practical, nuts-and-bolts solution for the pending baby-boomer retirement wave. She invites us not only to honor the aging process, but provides a means by which we care more able to do so."  − Shayne A. Mason RN, MSN, NP Co-host "nurse talk radio" Instructor - University of San Francisco
