America is about to experience an elder boom that will affect all generations. With someone new turning 65 every 8 seconds (!), how can we provide the care that we'll need in the onrushing future?

MacArthur Genius Award winner Ai-Jen Poo, Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Co-Director of the Caring Across Generations campaignone of Newsweek's 150 Fearless Women, one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World, and a 2013 World Economic Forum Young Global Leaderoffers fresh answers in her powerful new book, The Age of Dignity.

We have more seniors in America today than at any time in history, and every day more than ten-thousand people turn 65!  By 2018, demand for home health care will increase by more than 90%. As a student volunteer working with immigrant women on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Ai-Jen Poo saw every day just how little we value the largely female, often undocumented caregiving population. As a daughter and granddaughter, she saw exactly how crucial  they had been in her own family. Interweaving her own personal stories with those of seniors and their lifelines, The Age of Dignity provides many surprisingly positive
solutions to some of our most serious problems. She outlines a roadmap to our becoming a more caring nation, while addressing our fraying social net and the limited opportunities for women and immigrants in the workforce.

        "The Age of Dignity is about solutions. Filled with the stories  of the people and relationships that make American great, it offers a unique perspective  on our changing nation and the way forward."  Van Jones

       "Ai-Jen is one of the smartest and most empathetic advocates in America."
                                                     Sara Horowitz
