Perspectives on Productive Aging
Social Work with the New Aged

The United States is undergoing a demographic transformation.  By 2030, the number of people aged 65 and older is expected to double, rising to 70 million. This growing population of older adults will create an unprecedented demand for aging related programs, policies and services. NASW has established an Aging Initiative to raise awareness about the breadth of geriatric social work practice, and increase the numbers of professionally trained and credentialed social workers who serve older adults and their families.

Documentary Examines Caregiving - NASW News (3/08)

NASW partnered with WGBH Boston to present a national outreach campaign for the documentary Caring for Your Parents. The 90-minute documentary explores the realities of caring for elderly parents.

The documentary will aired on PBS on April 2, 2008. A number of NASW chapters, including the Illinois, New Jersey, Louisiana and Nevada chapters, are hosted special premiere events for the film.
