MacArthur Genius Award winner Ai-Jen Poo, Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Co-Director of the Caring Across Generations campaign-one 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 Leader-offers 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%. 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
