Hilltop Senior Research Analyst Harriet L. Komisar, Ph.D., gave a presentation at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics Second Annual Conference on Aging and Society: “Reforming Long Term Care—Back to the Future” on October 7, 2009, in Westbury, New York. Komisar’s presentation, entitled You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide: Facing the Costs of Long-Term Care, provided an overview of long-term care (LTC), the population who utilizes it, and the common types of LTC assistance needed; discussed the costs of LTC from both an individual’s perspective and the national perspective; and made suggestions as to how the nation can prepare to meet the future needs of this increasing population.
