MIT Sloan Alumni Online: Paul Osterman PhD '76
Who Will Care For Us: The Coming Crisis of Long-Term Care

The American approach to long-term care can best be described as muddling through: relying on tens of millions of unpaid family members and millions of poorly trained and poorly compensated paid caregivers. This will not be viable going forward. Professor Paul Osterman discusses these issues in his new book, Who Will Care For Us? Long-Term Care and the Long-Term Workforce. Join him for a discussion on how to repair our patchwork system of long-term care and attract the quality workforce that we will need.
